After all the help with my post on the Remington 770, I ended up doing some trading at a show and got a Winchester model 94. However, I still needed a quality replacement for the 770? I found it "the Savage Axis"... I collect guns. My quest was to find a "easy on the pocket" 30-06 for my collection and to loan to buddies that come to hunt with me on short notice. What are your comments on my find and my opinion?
