Default My savage Model 25 cheap build

I have been watching for a decent .223 Remington rifle for a while, and I found a Savage model 25 unfired in the used rack at my local cabelas for only about $25 more than a new axis. I think I paid $343 for it.

The model 25 has a 3 sided bolt versus a 2 sided like the axis. I think it locks up tighter and it's jeweled so it's a bit smoother too.

Not many videos of this one in .223 but in 17 hornet there's a few. I got a $23 bipod on it, $10 sling, and $80 scope with $15 rings.

I have to go sight it in hopefully tomorrow in between moving stuff between my house and my parents (emptying my house so I can move into the new one)

I have no idea how it will perform, or if it will be accurate, but time will tell.












I think it looks cool at least

I took it out and sighted it in yesterday, was getting 1/2" groups at 50 and 100 yds until my eyes started getting blurry from squinting
