So just bought a new Savage Axis 308 for hunting. My buddy gave me 2 boxes of Hornady Whitetail to sight it in and use for the season. I know this is an entry level rifle but it's still a Savage and known to be accurate. Well to my dismay even after 20 shots the best groups I could get at 100 yds was 3 1/2". I was very frustrated and had quite a few flyers. Came home and cleaned it real good and bought some Federal Nontypical ammo. Took 2 shots at 150 yds and this was the result Now THAT is the accuracy I was looking for out of this rifle. The Hornady and Federal were both 150gr. It's just amazing to me the difference in quality and performance between 2 well known and respected brands. Take the time and find out what works best for you and your rifle. Makes a world of difference.
