At the range last week and my buddy shows up with a Savage Axis, 6.5 Creedmore with an SWF (I think that was the brand) scope. Never heard of that brand before - he purchased it off the internet. He proceeds to shoot a five shot group, off the bench, that covered a nickel or there about using factory ammo, i.e. Winchester factory with 125 bullets. I looked at my 243 Win, with a custom Hart barrel that cost me $700 installed and shake my head since mine doesn't shoot any better if that! Never owned a Savage but rethinking that.
