Pulled trigger on a Savage 350 Legend
Southern MI has some goofy rules for deer rifles.
For the last 30 years I've used my Knight MK-85 muzzleloader and a SW629.
Finally realized the state procrastination will outlast my years left before allowing regular rifle calibers in zone 3
So, over the years the gun folks have developed a couple impressive straight walls calibers, 450 bushmaster and 350 Legend.
I finally decided on one to get.
Savage Apex Storm.
Pretty impressed! Gun comes with a Vortex 3x9 mounted and bore sighted. I went for the SS metal, the Apex cost about 2x the Axis model.
I fondled the Ruger American and the CVA bolt action. The CVA was a smooth nice feeling action. The price and camo cerakoat turned me off. Savage won out.
Anyway, out of the box sighting in was 6 shots, I'm sure I was shakey and not steady, but it put them on the X with little scope adjusting.
I suppose I'll shop for ammo in off season, as it's hard to even find here right now. I will set up for reloading if I can get components. I can see using this gun for ground hogs and 'yotes
Plus, it's a lightweight gun. Easy on the shoulder and compact for deer stands and blinds.
Savage gets a thumbs up.
P.S. for in the blind I got a BOG Deathgrip tripod. That thing is cool too.
