    ...three shot groups.

    But I don't care. 3 shots at 100 yds today through my Savage .223. Bone stock with the factory Nikon scope it was only $453. How can you not love a rifle that cheap that shoots this good?

    That's impressive shooting at any price! Looks like you've got a winner.

    You just doing plinking with it or are you planning on varmint/predator hunting with it?

    Nice group, I have a cheap old Remington 788 in .223 with a Tasco scope that likes to shoot groups like that when I do my part.

    It's primary use is woodchuck eradication.

    That'll do it! You must have some awful big woodchucks if you're sighting in with 69 grainers!

    I take it you're talking about the Axis?

    I love mine, even with a cheap centerpoint scope I put the first 2 rounds touching at 100. After that I was having too much fun to keep another in the group but if I make myself concentrate it's almost unfair for vermin.

    I'm jealous of anybody who has access to a place they can shoot at 100yds... Nice shooting.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Not too shabby Timmy.

    I've been wanting a bolt action .223 lately. I have enough ammo around.

    Hell yeah that good!
    You can't go wrong with a Savage. Savage and Ruger are the only ones that make their 223 bolt guns with a 1 in 9 twist rate which stabilizes those longer bullets. I don't know what Remington is thinking anymore.

    If you pay close attention to the stock rifle competitions, off the shelf Savage rifles are cleaning house.

    For $453 you just can't beat Savage. I think the gun is ugly and I'm not too fond of the cheap plastic magazine but I can live with it because it prints tiny groups.

    I have been extremely impressed with my heavy barreled Mark 2 rifle. It is what I call "stupid accurate". It really is hard not to shoot well.

    Savage really has a gem with their accu-trigger.
