Well kaido,
I have read up on a lot of review and people are complaining about malfunctions and poor accuracy. I'm not saying they're all like that but they don't line up with the axis. They are capable of sub MOA easy. Just my experience

Everyone seems to bag on this rifle and its apparent total lack of repeatable accuracy. I've owned one for almost a year now and aside from when I first got it, I've been able to keep my groups at 1.5" or lower. One of my best groups was actually with factory ammunition and it was a little over half an inch. The vast majority of my groups are all under an inch. The ones that are larger, like when I first started shooting centre fires (this rifle was my first), I put the blame on me as the shooter.
I'm not sure about accuracy really but I know guys that have them and they jam and sometimes the bolt gets stuck, maybe they just got bad guns but I don't know for sure. I think the American is better then the savage and the Remington.

The bolt throw on the 770 is a little rough but like I tell my buddys that wanna shoot it, "you just gotta run the bolt like you gotta pair and you'll be fine."

That's gotta be the best way of putting it. Lol
My girlfriend doesn't even have issues running the bolt at all.

The bolt on the 770 is 60 degree compared to 70 on the Ruger & axis, so its a shorter throw. Also the bolt on the 770 rides on polymer at the rear of the receiver. Once it's broken in they won't jam from a sticky bold. I also know that the axis has issues ejecting shells sometimes where the 770 throws out shells of all cal even if you pull back the bolt slowly.

I have no experience with the axis just the American and the Remington
