ihave a 114 american classic. i do not hand load. it is still a little ammo sensitive prefers hornadays and federal fusions 165 to 168 grains. it has turned out to be a great shooter just wasnt a great shooter with the cheap rounds i wanted it to be. also really took about 80 rounds to tighten up best of luck

I'm pissed. I was supposed to pick up my savage axis yesterday. (Friday) but when I went down there my rifle wasn't even delivered yet. They say its still processing and can't tell me when it will arrive. I was ****ing livid.

Depends on the price, they have an axis in 308 for $277 at our Wal-Mart and an American in 30-06 for $350

Is the axis a better built rifle then the ruger American. I know the axis is a threaded barrel and I believe the ruger is not.

The rem 770 is junk. Axis is the lower grade savage rifles but is better made and very accurate out of the box. Dropped a buck at 225 yards with an axis 243

Just out of curiosity, have you fired the 770 at all? I own one and that coyote I took was at 150 yards and it placed the bullet exactly where I wanted it to go, right behind the shoulder.

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 agree with kaido, I've owned my 770 in 30-06 for close to 2 years now and am very happy with it. Granted its no 700 but for the $350 I paid for it I couldn't be happier, I can shoot .5 inch groups at 100yds with my reloads, and compared to the axis its a lot nicer rifle, the savage feels cheap when you hold it.

Lets say I ripped this dude a new one and he wound up apologizing. I have a bad temper. I know it shouldn't have bothered me but I have more testosterone running through me then the average person. Lol. I just get tired of people saying I should have gone with a bigger round but I live in the Central Valley of California and there isn't anything around here that a .30-06 can't take down with ease so why would I need a bigger caliber.
That's hilarious, the belted magnums definitely have their place but I'm always amazed by the guy who hunts 150 pound whitetails in thick woods where a long shot MIGHT be 100 yards!
