I live on the hot, humid, salty Gulf Coast I'll pay the extra for stainless here, and with alot of guns the price difference is more like $50

Where I'm at they r charging 100 dollars more. I was looking into the stainless cause it looks sweet but wasn't going to do 100. I would have done 50 but then again I don't live in the environment that u speak of.

I just don't understand how you would buy these over the Stevens 200 setup which is infinitely upgradeable should you decide to do so. A great action which you can put in an infinite number of stocks of you choose to, savage action so it's got tons of aftermarket support. A better platform to build on from $350? I don't know of one.

i have been saying the same thing about the stevens 200, it is basically the savage 110 action without the accutrigger, this action is a time proven commonity unlike the 770 and savage axis

Agreed, would opt for the Stevens over the Axis anyday, but I would love to see the Ruger vs Savage/Stevens head to head that would be fun. Browning has a new value A-Bolt II for $499 I have one, and while I have it shooting great now I cannot recommend it, took me many hours of range time and on the reloading bench to dial up a good load, all factory ammo shot horrible 5-8" groups! I do like the little flip down magazine though, best idea since sliced bread.

Axis or American vs 770. The axis & American both win & are only diff for personal preference. I own a spectacular 770 & I love it more than any other bolt gun I've ever shot (except the trigger). My bolt is great & it's super accurate. Even more so now that it's been customized. However it's rare to get a great or even a good 770. Quality control at the factory sucks. MY POINT IS. The 770 can be great if you happen to get a great 770... But it may be crap. Here's a pic of 4 key holed shots at 125 yards from my 770. The 5th shot on the target was me adjusting my scope. The 4 key holed shots were convective.

I'm not sure here, but I think you've just had what I like to refer to as "a brain fart." Think what you're trying to say is a clover leaf, not a keyhole.

Clover leaf = 3-5 shot group where all rounds cut a ragged hole in the target/paper.

Keyhole = bullets enter target in unexpected ways, think side ways, often leaving an old style looking keyhole you'd find on an older style door.

It's all good, everyone finds out the meaning of things in their own time.
