Savage Axis XP .270
Not trying to be a Delta Bravo here but must wonder what sort of groups a guy that shoots 2 rounds a year at a target could possibly hope for? I shoot more than that just to foul my barrel...and yes, most barrel manufacturers do recommend a break in procedure. Shoot once clean, shoot once clean....shoot 3 times clean, repeat until no signs of copper (using copper solvent of course, hopes 9 won't do it.).
Savages are supposed to be a very accurate rifle..got no dog in that fight but they certainly have a large fan base. Most of the avid fans will quickly admit the stocks feel cheap, the bolt may not be the smoothest; but the accuracy can be pretty amazing...consistently better then rifles that cost way more.
Take the rings off the gun and check that the screws holding the bases on are tight, then make sure the screws on the rings are tight. The only reason the scope is a Bushnell is because ATK owns both Savage and Bushnell, in reality I'm guessing it's the cheapest scope ATK could get a factory in China to make.
