Default A second vote against that Savage Axis

Savage and Remington make fine rifles, but they both have one to pass on. In my opinion the Savage Axis and Remington 710/770 are not a good choice. I recently shot two Marlin XL7s in 30-06 and would definitely recommend anyone to get a Marlin. The Stevens 200 is a Savage 110 with a couple of features deleted and I think would be a good choice. It is amazing how good the rifle can be for only 300.xx dollars if you choose carefully. Try to save some money for a decent scope (~150 dollars) to pair up with your new rifle. It is as important as you pull the trigger on that beautiful Whitetail. You can't shoot what you can't clearly see.
