Default A new Savage Axis for me!!

Just got this last weekend - complete with Konus Pro 12-16x44 (not sure about the 12-16 its something like that and I'm to lazy to go look). Anyways... here it is...




Caliber is .223, btw... I have shot it but it was not properly sited. Local store said they sited it but it was shooting 3 foot off target at about 10 o'clock (at 100 yards) so I'm thinking they did something wrong I bore sited it and will be checking again Saturday or Sunday

If it's that far off, either they did a piss poor job or you should check the mounts and rings.

And congrats on the new stick.

Nice! i just bought the exact same gun about 2 months ago. i went with a bushnell 4-12x40 scope. even with cheap ammo it's still puttin 1.5 or so inch groups at 100 yards. not off a vise or rest though, just restin on my balled-up sweatshirt

while it's not the perfect rifle, i think it's safe to say the gun is more accurate then i am....which in the end is all that really matters

I had been looking for a bolt action hunting type rifle. I bought it because it was purty, came in .223 and was less than half the cost of a remington 700 i'm heading to the range tonight - i have re-zeroed the scope with my own bore-sighter. It was way off... gonna take that with me to make sure the scope is holding zero. i'll report back

Enjoy your new rifle. What kind of animals are you going to hunt?

The paper kind I don't hunt. I DO enjoy shooting rifles and pistols at the range, however. Not that I'm against hunting, it is just that cows taste so much better (to me) than deer does

Default Savage Axis 22-250

Just bought a Savage Axis in 22-250 with the camo stock. Sighted it in and shot quarter size groups at 100 yards with the 3-9 Bushnell that came with it. At 200 yards I am getting 11/4 inch groups. I'm impressed with the performance right out of the box. Trigger was a little heavy so I had a buddy lighten it up a bit. Now its around 3#. Shoots great. Good coyote gun.

I like mine - I am not skilled enough to shoot groups that tight, but it isn't the firearms fault

I just got one about a month ago. Stainless, with the Savage provided scope, in 25-06. I just retired about 2.5 months ago and this is something I've wanted for a quite a while.

25-06 is a very, very versatile caliber. Doesn't kick "real" hard, and can be used for all sorts of varmints (4 and 2 legged), deer, and in a pinch, even for elk and black bear. I don't plan on hunting all of that, but, it's nice to know that it can do it.

I had it at the range a couple of weeks ago for the first time and I was getting 2-3" groups at 100 yards shooting from the bench. I was using Remington Core-Lokt 100gr PSP. It was all I could find the day before we went to the range. But, I was not very steady. I only had the fore-stock supported on a bag, I was stabilizing the rear on my shoulder. I'm diabetic and my blood sugar was all over the place that day, and I just wasn't that steady. We'll see how it, and I, work in a few weeks.

I've got some dies now and I'm gonna' start working up a few loads: a good varmint load, a good deer load, and a good plinking load.

This is really a damn nice rifle. And when you factor in the cost, it's a quite extraordinary rifle.

Like the rest of you who've purchased this rifle, I will be enjoying mine.
