Ditto that for my Savage Stevens in .308: three shots touching with a cold barrel. Don't need anything more than that for hunting.Mosin1942 said:Savage. I was led to believe they were low quality etc... Until I bought a cheap-o Savage Axis in .30-06 for a first hunting rifle. They really stand by their statement about accuracy, even that entry level rifle put 3 shots touching at 100yds with Federal Fusion 150gr hunting ammo. When it's time to upgrade, forget Remington, Weatherby, etc, I'm buying another Savage.
If the rifle is accurate, and reliable, then there must be something superior about it. If your shopping a name that's one thing, if your shopping a shooter, then its another.WildWolf said:I understand that Savage is an accurate rifle......it is not a beautiful rifle nor does it have a superior action. I am trying to find something that I can hand down to my kids in 30 years. If not Savage then what?
