I currently own a savage axis 30-06. I use it for hunting, and i have no problem taking out a pronghorn up to 300 yards away. However, i would like to be able to shoot longer distances. I would under no circumstances shoot an animal any further than 400 yards, but i would like to be able to hit targets up to 600 yards and maybe even further some day. I am unsure if my $300 axis is capable of that range accurately, or if i should upgrade to a remington 700 sps in order to hit those far away targets. I understand that optics are an important part of distance shooting, so i will also save up to eventually buy a better scope. Currently, i use a $150 scope which works fine for my 300 yard shots, but i will eventually buy a quality scope. I also understand that the 700 will cost a couple hundred dollars more than the axis, and i am fine with that. I would appreciate opinions of whether my axis is fine, or if i should upgrade, and other rifle suggestions if you think there is a better option.
