I use a Savage model 111 GCNS 7mm-08 Bolt-action for Deer Hunting,it has the wood stock,Accu-trigger with Millet rings and a Leupold Rifleman 3x9x40mm matte- black scope and is easy on the recoil,great knock down power and very accurate.I also own a Savage Axis XP Camo .223 for a Coyote Hunting,it is a Bolt-action with the package Bushnell 3x9x40mm scope using Hornady 55 grain V-max bullets... Reasonably priced,very accurate and well made!

For those that are on a Budget and have Bills to pay but want to Hunt I suggest shopping around,get prices and info on what they are wanting to buy and ask others what they recommend,each Individual has different Incomes,Needs and Goals and there are many affordable Entry Level Rifles available for those starting out and some of Us wanting different Makes,Model and Calibers of Rifles to add to our Hunting needs and the Fun Factor of having something new and different!

2 Major Companies that come to mind that fill the needs of those starting out is Savage with the Axis & Axis II and Ruger with their Ruger American & Ruger Predator Rifles....even Mossberg & Rossi have some good prices on different Rifles!

I have that exact rifle the OP is asking about. Mine is in 30-06 and I can say that it shot circles around my total custom model 70. I LOVE my savage. You will not be disappointed with the out of box performance! Good luck and hope this helps.

My first rifle was a Savage Package deal that came with the scope. Think it was a model 110? Chambered in .308. Was a great starter rifle until I started setting up a Browning A Bolt. Couldn't beat the price at under $400 15 years ago.

A few years ago, I got the same model LH version in 30-06, topped with an Trijicon 3x9x40 red post reticle. It is a great shooter.

My only complaint is that parts of the stock feel like Tupperware, no offense to that company.

I'll fully agree with the accuracy claims.....Savage makes accurate rifles....

I owned several and had serious feeding issues, serious trigger issues...( that has been solved by the accutrigger) and safety failures....yes...guns discharging while on safe!

There are no Savage rifles in my house and likely never will be again...it takes more than accuracy to make a rifle.....and ...oh...yea....they're ugly!

I've never heard of any problems like you mentioned here out on any of the hunting websites and I don't believe there was a recall for anything related to what you mentioned. Now if you were talking about the Remington 7 and 700 line I would agree 100% with what you stated, but not Savage.

Man I wouldn't use a savage for a fence post. To me they are bulky, theirs fit finish also needs improvements. Before the accutrigger their accuracy was a not their. Now with a trigger pull that is manageable I herd their accuracy has improved. The only savage I like are the old model 24. Have read about them firing with the operating the bolt and or disengaging the safty their was a video on YouTube on this one time.

They may be ugly to some, but for the price they are a well made gun. I have never seen the video you are talking about and wonder if you're mixing them up with the problems that Remington has had for decades with the 700.
