WhiteGTDropTop Posted February 13, 2022 Share Posted February 13, 2022 Watz up guys, I have now been hunting 2 seasons and figured it’s time to buy my first hunting rifle. I wanna stay on the cheap side. The local gun shop has a Savage Axis 2 with a Vortex diamondback scope in 6.5CM for $580. Walmart near me has a Savage 110 Hunter XP with a Vortex scope in 308 for $570. Does anyone know what the main differences between the axis 2 and 110 are? They both seem to get really good reviews and I like the fact that they already have Vortex scopes on them. Also, as far as caliber. I was trying to get a do it all caliber. I will be hunting mostly deer but I wanna have a big enough round to be able to drop a black bear if I see one and they are in season. For this reason I was leaning towards the 30-06 or 308. I’m just not sure the 6.5CM would have the power I was looking for. I am definitely open to the 6.5CM if guys have experience with them. Any info or recommendations you guys can pass my way would be appreciated. thanks Sean Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
