This brand new, exclusive Savage Axis II 6.5 Creedmoor rifle features a Kryptek Highlander stock and a Bushnell 4-12x40mm SharpShooter scope. Savage has also equipped this model with a Heavy Barrel. These features are all new to the Axis II family of rifles, and are not found on any other Axis II model.
Since its introduction, the 6.5 Creedmoor has become one of the most popular hunting cartridges on the market. The new 6.5 Creedmoor Savage Axis II Kryptek rifle is the perfect way for a new hunter to go from the store to the field.
I received my Savage Axis II and immediately cleaned it and went to the range. The Bushnell scope was mounted at the factory so I was ready, and after about four shots I had it zeroed in at 100 yds, the accuracy was even better than I expected. My first four shots after the scope was zeroed were 1/2 moa group! Three of the shots were touching and the fourth was about 1/4 inch away from the others! This, considering I’m not an expert and the scope reticle is quite thick and I’m using off the shelf ammo from Hornady which I will say is very good and consistent! Mine is chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor, and I was shooting both 120 gr and 140 grain match ammo and both shot very good groups! The Camo stock is a little flimsy but didn’t seem to effect the accuracy and it looks great! Awesome rifle at any price but unbeatable at this price!
Gave the gun a 4 due to the stock. It's junk. Put on a Boyds laminated AT 1 stock $215.00 delivered. The gun doesn't flex at the grip area now. Boyd stock makes it a heavy rifle not for stalking. Shoots .5 inch at 100 yrds with Hornady 140 BTHP. Can't wait to get my dies for some handloads. A Heavy barreled 6.5 for $239.00 after rebate cannot be beat! If you don't have lots of money to throw at a target/hunting rifle this is the best bang for your buck. I stopped shooting my .308 target rifle after I got this.
I sighted the rifle in at 100 yards off of a tripod. After the 3rd shot it was dead on . I took a couple 200 yard shots football size rock and hit my mark both times. Ill be putting a better scope on, but the Bushnell works for now. Ammo used was Hornady 129 gr; that's all the store had. The trigger was real easy to adjust. They make it easy. Great rifle.
New favorite in the safe.
Bought this rifle, put on a EGW rail, a 2x10x42 Sig Whiskey5 scope, warne medium qd rings, sighted in. I was shooting 1.5 groups off a small sandbag at 200 yards. I am thinking I could tighten them up with a lead sled. I was using Federal Non Typical 140 grain ammo. I tried the Hornady 129 grain Interlock and had 2 inch groups at 100 yards. My rifle didn't like it. Ran out of ammo before I tried 300 yard range. Would like to shoot it at 300 when it warms up again. Have not received the rebate yet, and it is kind of a pita. So customer satisfaction is still not rated.
Wanted the 6.5 Creedmoor for low recoil and it had a reputation for accuracy. This rifle does it all. Not all ammo will shoot tight groups, but Hornady shot fantastic and I went with Hornady Brass and Bullets to make my own that shoot extremely tight. I did try some Winchester Ammo that was not good, but the ammo isn't the rifle. With good ammunition this rifle will shoot as good as any 6.5 Creedmoor on the market. I also own a standard Axis with a standard barrel. It shoots good too. I did do a trigger job on that one because the factory trigger is a bit heavy. But it shoots good too. Both Savages I have shoot much better than some Remingtons and Rugers that I own. And they cost me quite a bundle more. Savage gives you the most bang for the buck.
For $349 I was not sure what to expect! Well I am happy after trying it out, I have the 6.5 Axis II and it is a shooter. Different weight bullet did change the accuracy but were consistent. This gun cut paper right out of the box. Holes were touching for same weight bullet. Pick a bullet you want to hunt with and stick to it, you will be happy.
I've had my Kryptek Highlander 6.5 Creedmoor since last October. I have three other 6.5 Creedmoor rifles: Savage FCP, Ruger American Predator, and Thompson Center Compass. The Axis II shoots better than all of them. The FCP and Ruger American both shoot .5 MOA regularly. I can't get the creep out of the Compass trigger, and therefore it wont do better than 1.25 or so. The Axis II heavy barrel highlander shoots five shot groups less than .5 inch at 220 yards. That's better than .25 MOA. Outstanding rifle.
Been looking for a 6.5 ever since a buddy of mine purchased one last year. He paid well over 5k for his after he had the Nightforce scope put on it. I'm not rich and can't afford that. so I began looking for one. Came across the Highlander and purchased it mainly for the heavy barrel and the price. Could not be happier with the performance of the rifle. I used it last year hunting hogs and a few deer. No complaints. Everything I shot fell immediately and didn't suffer one bit. Mine came with a scope mounted already and I used it last year. Wasn't too happy with the scope that came with the rifle. I plan on purchasing a Nightforce as soon as I find the right one for me; one I can afford. The hogs where we hunt are night owls, and come out just before daybreak and right after sunset, and the scope doesn't have a good view once it starts to get dark. Anyway, IMO it's a great gun and a great price. Thanks guys great shipping and very satisfied with the rifle.
Great gun for the money. Very easy transaction. Thanks SOSS for another great product at a great price.
One word will summarize for me.
