Well I finally purchase the savage axis with bushnell scope. We tried it out and the range at 50 yrds and 100 yrds. scope wasn't zeroed in. It keep hitting down/left at 100yrd, 50 yrd is much more closer to the middle target. About the rifle, I like it very much just that when you tried to bring the action back after a shot to get another in, it just get stuck and I just have to look at it or swing the action back and forth a little to get it in the chamber. Otherwise great gun.

Going back to the range this weekend after I zero out the scope.

I have an Savage Axis as well 7mm-08 it is my truck gun. I have had some difficulties sighting it in at 100yrds. Let me know if you get your dialed in at that range. Mine is also a youth model I wanted a smaller gun for the truck.
