thank you. i am very proud of it. it shoots awesome. very accurate and still working on some more accurate loads for it. recoil is very, very tame due to it's weight, as it sits, it weighs right about 13.5 lbs. and i still want to add some more weight to it.

No Sir! it's strictly a bench rifle for target shooting. just an experiment i wanted to do. a budget target rifle for less than a $1000. just to show that a person didn't have to spend thousands of dollars to have an accurate long range target rifle to just have fun with. now i am realistic enough to know it can't compete with rifles in competition, that cost several times as much, but just for informal and fun longer range target shooting, i think it has been a sucess so far. it is still a work in progress and i still have more plans for it. i still might add more weight to it, haven't decided yet if i am going to go with a bipod or not, and i am still working with different bullet types and powders to get even more accuracy out of it.

That's pretty sweet! How far have you shot with it and what kind of MOA are you getting with it?

If it were a choice between Savage and Mossberg I would say go with the Axis, however if it were me, I would save up a little longer and buy a little better grade rifle and a mid grade scope.

I'll second that. Save a little more and get something worth showing off.

I haven't read this whole thread but if your wanting a GOOD hunting rifle that will also be a good comp rifle the x7s 308 Marlin would be a very good choice. For straight comp though the x7vh 308 would be a better choice. IMHO the savage axxis is just one cut above the m770 Remington
