There isn’t an abundance of glamour in manufacturing processes. You don’t sit around the campfire or the shooting range bragging up your rifle’s performance, backing up your claim by citing streamlined assembly protocols or an innovative injection molding process that provides more uniform cooling and greater consistency. You let your rifle do the talking. But in case you’re wondering how Savage can make the Axis in the USA and still save you money without sacrificing performance, here’s the secret: Savage didn’t design a cheaper rifle, Savage designed a better way to make a Savage.
This gun is a shooter. Took me a little while to get it dialed in. Once I got it dialed in at 50 yards then moved out too 100 yards and I was shooting out previous holes. It loves the Federal Power Shock 150 grain ammo. This will become my favorite gun for deer season.
