Re: axis info plz.
I recently purchased an Axis in 22-250 for my son to shoot. I was looking for a Stevens 200 but none were available locally. The Axis will hold 1" to 1.25" at 100 but that is the only thing it has going for it. The Stevens will be much easier to accessorize as the there are no after market stocks, recoil lugs, etc. for the Axis. If you plan is to improve the rifle now or in the near future I would definitely go with the Stevens.
