I was looking very hard at the Stevens or possibly the Savage Axis but the triggers are a bit of a turn off. Also considering the Weatherby Vanguard (Howa), at $430 its at the upper end of what I would like to spend. Main goal here is to end up with a sub-MOA gun for the range. I do reload so building up accurrate rounds is doable, and .223 rounds look cheap to build as compaired to my .308 reloads. Any thoughts?
