knoxx axiom stock

Has any member had much to do with the axiom stock.
Dose the recoil reduction system actually work,as most people who recommend them also say to place a muzzle break on as well.
If you compare a 338 using the system above, what would it compare to in recoil.
30-06, 308,270,243 ?

Re: knoxx axiom stock

I have 2 of them and love them both. I got the first one mainly becuase I thought it looked cool on Howa 1500 .243 (no recoil reduction needed). And then I bought a replacement stock for Howa 1500 300 WM. I can not compare because I never shot the 300 with the regular stock. However, it is hard for me to compare to what cal. it kicks like becuase it is a different type of kick. It is more of a firm push. It seems to slow it down a bit or something. I would put it between .308 and 30-06. I love the free float barrel and I get 1 hole accuracy at 100 yards from both.

hope this helps

Re: knoxx axiom stock

It seems that accuracy would be worse or at least inconsistent with all the moving parts. How far out have you shot with it and how were you groups?

Re: knoxx axiom stock

I have only shot 100 yards so far, but here are the results. As long as it is set up right and the bolts are tight consistancy should not be an issue.

Re: knoxx axiom stock

I have a Knoxx stock but it is not the Axiom, it is the regular one, the Compstock

BLACKHAWK! Rifle CompStock - BLACKHAWK!

It is on my 375 Ruger. I don't particularly like muzzle brakes and so I built a heavy hunting rifle off a Winchester 70 long action. With a #5 Pac-Nor 3 groove at 24", 6x42 IOR Tactical and the Knoxx Compstock it weighs 11.5#. It is not unpleasant to shoot at all and I would compare it to an unbraked 338 win mag. When shooting a 270 gr bullet at 2900 fps then that is not bad at all.

My Knoxx stock is very well made with a full bedding block


But, the receiver and SCOPE come backward and if you are putting it on a heavy kicker then you need to get a scope with the most eye relief you can find. The 6x42 IOR I have advertised a 4" eye relief and it is MINIMAL for my 375. I can feel the scope just touch my eyebrow on a few occasions. I am now thinking about a Bushnell 1.25x8x32 Elite 6500 which has an advertised eye relief of 6". I would assume you would have the same problem if you put it on a long range 338.

Re: knoxx axiom stock

Nice Groups. Were those 2 groups shot with the same setup. Wondering if the vertical stringing on the first group had something to do with the stock movement or maybe another factor?
