    Was wondering if any of yall know anything about the Savage Axis .270. Would like some input on this weapon. Personally i think the 270 caliber is an awesome round, but on the fence about this weapon. I would appreciate any input/ experience anybody has about his gun.

    I believe the Savage Axis is a quality rifle for the price and you would get a lot of bang for the buck. :p I have always been a big fan of the .270 so I am biased on that subject. The .270 is a very accurate round in most rifles. Although it does not offer the same level of versatility with bullets as the 30-06 it can be used well for target shooting, varmint shooting and big game hunting. I think the Savage Axis in .270 is a very good choice and I would buy one in an instant if I were looking for a rifle in this price range.

    Haven't shot the savage .270's but many of my friends have and they all had good comments about it. As per the .270, i like it, but im more of .308 or 338wm guy :), not saying .270 wont get the job done all over the north america :)

    Have a Axis and a Marlin XL7 and a Marlin XS7. All are accurate rifles for me. Only thing the Axis has over the Marlin is its detachable magazine and you can probably find them for a little lower price. You'd probably prefer both the Marlin trigger and safety over one in Axis. Also, while no big thing, removal of Marlin bolt is easier.
