New Savage 308 and it's first trip to the range
A few months back I bought a Savage Axis II chambered in .308. I finally got out yesterday to shoot it. First off, the thing is wicked accurate and consistent. I put a 6-24x50 scope on it and sighted it in yesterday.

After I had it sighted in at 50 yds, I moved to the 100 yd range. I hung 2 claybirds up on thumbtacks while I was hanging my targets. When I got back to the bench I shot the first clay and it disintegrated instantly. I was happy with the shot so I lined up on the second one and let it fly. It just hung there. My buddy said "you missed" to which I replied "no, I hit it".

He thought I was full of shit until he ran down and grabbed it off the backstop... needless to say I was a bit surprised. Big Grin

Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool that it actually went through without busting it. Thought I'd share. The other highlight of my trip was when another club member asked if my buddy and I wanted to shoot his 50 BMG. You know what our answer was.
One thing I don't have set up currently is a good, no frills long range gun. Thanks for sharing.

I sold 2 Mosins to buy this one. They were great long range, but at least now good ammo isn't like finding unicorns.

That's where I'm at now. Someday I'll cobble something together. Might be too late however, I've got higher gun priorities before November hits.
