The Savage Axis is a super accurate gun. Thankfully, they are fitting them with better triggers now. The one I have had the heaviest trigger imaginable-you checked the safety each time you went to shoot (not just me, either!). We replaced it with a Timney trigger, and it is so sweet! My other Savage is a 111 which comes with an Accutrigger.
So, John_Deer, are you saying that you have bullet pass through with the .243 100 gr. Super X? Not one of the deer we have shot with the .243 have had an exit wound. The rounds we used have been Rem Core-Lokt, Hornady American Whitetail, and Hornady Superformance.
