I ended up going to the lgs this morning managed to get a brand new axis II in .270 with a banner on it for $650 obviously not exactly what I was after but I thought for the price it was atleast worth a try!


Enjoy it mate, I'm sure it will do the job fine on the bambies with good shot placement. :thumbsup:


I'll load 150gr in it and make sure it doesnt miss haha, if the scope is trash I'll just spend a couple extra bucks on a better one!

About 2010 I purchased a SAVAGE 111 FCXP3 IN .300 WIN.MAG for bear and moose.......I removed the cheap bushnell scope and rings....purchased a LEUPOLD
VXII 3x9 scope ,rings AND bases...except for the pencil thin barrel which ''heats up after 3-4 rounds the rifle is a well made tack driver.....
the SAVAGE also has whats called THE BARREL NUT RING....with a rifle vice and barrel wrench,you can remove and change barrels with any round that fits the bolt head.... basically same action as the Savage 110.

I used to have a Savage 110 in 22-250 many years ago. It was nothing special to look it, however it always shot quite well with hand loads.

Are you going to get any pre fit barrels for it?

Looking at the price of pre fit barrels (as they seem to come from us) getting a local gunsmith to do it is nearly a better option
Blame it on the phone auto correct
