Savage puts out some pretty good rifles if you get the kit. I have a left and right handed Model 110 in .270 Win, primarily because I have two sons, one a lefty and the other is right handed. I've used the left handed one for the past two seasons, six rounds and six deer in the freezer. Didn't even bother re-checking the scope this year finding that it was dead on (pardon the pun) when dropping the first deer of the season.
I wouldn't recommend the Axis or 'cheep' (alright, so it's supposed to be spelled 'cheap') model because you simply get your $$ worth paying the extra ~ $130 or so to get one of the model 10's (short action) or 110's (long action). (Accutrigger/Accustock/etc.)
But that's just one man's humble opinion on the subject. Ain't it great that we are still able to talk about even having all of these different rifles??? Or at least we can at the moment. Won't take any bets how much longer though as long as we keep this same regime in office.
