Hi, I just bought a Savage Axis in a 25-06, though it has a shorter 22 in barrel, I've read some great reviews of it shooting 1/2 inch groups or slightly less right out of the box @100yrds.
I've not had a chance to zero mine in, I just got it in yesterday (Order,left hand)
So I need to mount the scope yet.
I'm very happy with it so far, the money for this rifle was a great buy, I wasn't sure about the stock, but after getting it, I'm pleased with it as well, solid tough and not flimsy like I had thought.
I'm mounting a Mueller 4x16x50 Tactical Scope on mine, and will let you know how it shoots in a few weeks, sorry I can't be of more help at the moment.
