    Savage Expands Lines with 6.5 Creedmoor

    Savage Arms expanded its bolt action rifle lines with the addition of the 6.5 Creedmoor. A number of new rifles are now available in this caliber.
    16 Lightweight Hunter

    This rifle uses a synthetic black stock and has a 20″ stainless steel barrel. It has a detachable, four round box magazine. Without a scope it weighs in at 5.65 pounds. The MSRP is $752.
    Axis

    The Axis is the company’s basic bolt action rifle. This model has a 22″ barrel, synthetic stock and a four round, detachable magazine. It weighs 6.5 pounds and retails for $368.
    Axis, Left Hand

    Savage is one of the few companies that caters to the left handed shooter. This model is a mirror image of the standard Axis above. It carries the same retail price.
    Axis XP

    Savage sells a lot of ready to go hunting rifles. Called the XP, these guns have a 3-9×40 scope that ships mounted and boresighted. The suggested retail is $407.
    Axis XP Stainless

    For the hunter wanting better corrosion resistance, Savage offers the XP Stainless. The price is an additional $100.
    Axis XP Camo

    This is the same as the XP, but with a synthetic stock finished in a camo pattern. $485.
    Axis II XP
    sCjZCZu5pzgfIvR4_1418172063be3a07a4cbf74da1cdd874-660x163.png
    The Axis II XP is similar to the Axis XP, but with the addition of the company’s popular adjustable AccuTrigger. In 6.5 Creedmoor, this gun retails for $485. A stainless version is also available at $580.
    Axis II XP Hardwood

    This version has a wood stock and comes with a mounted and boresighted 3-9×40 Weaver Kaspa scope. It retails for $506.
    Cadex Defense released new rifles in 6.5 Creedmoor earlier this year. Additionally, Seekins Precision announced the company would begin selling the SP10 chambered for the 6.5mm round. I’ve had a chance to run one of the SP10 guns in .308 Win and found it to be a very capable rifle. I imagine it will be excellent in 6.5 Creedmoor also.

    I imagine that there will be a varmint profile barrel soon, maybe even a LR rifle

    Looks like the 6.5 Creedmoor is here to stay.

    I have an Axis. I think the stock is crap, too bendy in the grip region. You can pull the gun off target just by squeezing the trigger, due to stock bending. :eek:

    I hope they shoot better than they feel.
    These guns just feel cheap. And look cheap.
    Well they are price cheap

    That predator Max1 has a fairly heavy profile barrel. A McMillan Game Warden stock and Id be in business.

    I have Boyd's on speed-dial for just such situations. That SS 6.5 20" + Accutrigger is now at my back door, hungry and meowing to be let inside. Hopefully they sell a ton of them such that ammo gets < $1 ppr.

    They sell a ton in these parts. 6.5 is very popular around here

    Yeah, and I bought an aftermarket trigger to reduce the trigger pull too. It gets to a point where the Axis is no longer a bargain.o_O

    But yeah, I might invest another $140... (sigh)
