New to me Savage Axis .308

So I picked up this Axis the other day at a Pawn Shop for $300 out the door. Has the factory Weaver scope and I had them take the bipod off another rifle and put it on mine.

My plans are to make it a nice tack driver at $500 yards for hunting.

Mods forthcoming are:

The Boyd's Pro Varmint Stock in either Coyote or Nutmeg

A Nikon Prostaff BDC 3.5-14x40 scope

For the trigger I will be following the Social Regressive's 1k for $500 trigger mods and reducing the creep and bringing the weighty 6lb pull down to 3lbs.

That should be more than enough to give me the desired accuracy and confidence for 500 yard kills.

Looking forward to it!!

Oh, I have to play around with ammo.

For now, it will be Winchester Ballistic Silvertip in 168gr.

I use this exact same round in my Remington 710 .30-06 and it absolutely loves them. Hopefully this Savage will too.

Once I get all the mods done, there's a man at Church that reloads all his ammo. I plan to experiment with some handloads and squeeze a few more mils out of it and maybe try for some 1000 yard targets
