I bought a Savage Axis 308 1 1/2 years ago for hunting. It is the cheapest Savage makes. Well I have had nothing but good things to say about it. I am 2 for 2 with this gun. I shot a deer at 85 yards with buck fever and it dropped where I shot it. I also shot a javelina at 230 yards first shot no problem. If anybody is having second thoughts about this rifle, don't. I have contimplated buying a higher end model but refuse until I have something to complain about the rifle. I would like the accutrigger but I have done the job without it. It is the best bang for the buck in my opinion. I would like your thoughts.
