    When I held a Savage Axis in my hands, it just did not feel as solid as a Ruger American that I held. Went with the Ruger, but, the choice is up to each individual.

  2. Jeffery Tillis on December 7, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    I like the Rugers alot more. Both need to improve the stocks. And I wish Ruger would improve the machining on the bolt carrier to reduce that zipper sound. All the Americans I have bought with the exception of one 30-06 have been extremely accurate. The other bargain rifle that competes with these two quite well is the TC Compass. Stiffer stock. Decent trigger that can be made better by changing the spring. And quite often sold at a really great price.

  3. Janelle Shortreed on December 7, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Save a little more and get a Tikka. It absolutely blows both of these out of the water in every single way.

  4. Speedgoat on December 7, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Out of the box, the savage is superior on the range. The trigger is too heavy though, I agree. Also, it’s an AXIS, not an ACCESS. LOL

  5. Brad Wilson on December 7, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    My axis 2 in 6.5 cm holds 4 rounds. Not 3

  6. Kerry Purcell on December 7, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    the ruger magazines are junk,,,,use them some,,,,,,and they will fail,,

  7. 336_Noah on December 7, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Savage holds 4 not 3

  8. john kennedy on December 7, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Savage is the clear winner as Ruger barrels suck !!

  9. Renaud Colmant on December 7, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Are you sponsored by Ruger !? 🤣

  10. James Wallace on December 7, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    You are definitely a Ruger man it’s plain to see. For an entry level Rifle I think they are both a good choice, but I think Savage is more accurate shot. I’ve got them both.

  11. Chris Stewart on December 7, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Well considering you are not even comparing two rifles that are in the same league, that being said you would’ve had a good video comparison if you had an Axis II with the accutrigger. Sorry but if you are going to put out a video that’s a really good comparison do it with rifles on the same level.

  12. One shot one kill jay 2011 on December 7, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Hey I have that ruger 2-23 what you showed
    But i am going hunting to shoot my first buck and my first 2 doe I’m going to use Winchester 2-23 deer season do extreme point wish me luck to shoot the deer😌

  13. Albert Lemont on December 7, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    The new Americans have polished bolts. No more zipper

  14. Mike Fein on December 7, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    I own a Ruger 6.5 Creedmoor and a Savage .308 I really can’t say anything bad about any of them. I must of got a great Savage because its real tight in the stock and the safety. All I can say is when you do buy a weapon check it out before taking it home. I read before taking home the Ruger the stock issues it had and the gun gods were good to me on that purchase as well. I see people grab a weapon and just pint in the air. Look at the build people each gun needs to be gone threw inspection before taking home.

  15. john blackbird on December 7, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Probably Rugar but there’s nothing wrong with the Savage

  16. Warren Green on December 7, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    I have both savge axis is the 1st gen in 30-06 and the ruger American predator stainless steel is in 6.5creed both put out great groups wouldn’t get rid off them I got higher end guns and they hang right with them also believe it or not my molded rem 770 shoots just as good as my molded BDL rem 700 made in 1971 both in 308

  17. John Sheldon on December 7, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    you lost me when you started wiggling the forends. The Savage had a bipod, you more leverage, so of course you would get more wiggle

  18. Rich Weatherly on December 7, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    It’s clear he doesn’t know how to insert a Savage Mag. Simply insert the back of the mag into its recess then pivot the front of the mag down. Click, roll forward and its done.

  19. thurman ray on December 7, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Love the video thank you for doing it

  20. Outdoors with Jake on December 7, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    The savage holds 4 in mag I have one

  21. David Bennett on December 7, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    5 minutes into your comparison and your Bias against Savage is evident.

  22. Melvin Huff on December 7, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    I got savage axis my clip hold 4 round

  23. john kennedy on December 7, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Savage all the way !!!

  24. Richard Dobis on December 7, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    Have you reviewed the Ruger American in 350?

  25. Mark K on December 7, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    14:30 "I’m not going to get into which one is better than the the other. . . . " You might want to rename the video to something more accurate.

  26. Tyler Parker on December 7, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    You dont actually think that gun has enough recoil to break that stock in half do you …

  27. Kevin Nowicki on December 7, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    This guy clearly has a Ruger Bias.

  28. Steve C on December 7, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    🇺🇸 Savage 🇺🇸

  29. Kenny Strange on December 7, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Ruger350 legend 22 inch barrel!!! All Day..

  30. Bullets4Bucks on December 7, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    The savage holds 4 rounds. I was mistaken.

  31. bob smith on December 7, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    I’ve never handled either of these rifles, but I’m a big fan of both the Ruger M77 and the Savage 110. I’m just not a big fan of the recent trend of major manufacturers pumping more marketing towards their budget lines vs their main bolt gun. That being said, I have shot a Remington 770, and was not at all impressed, and even without ever touching an Axis or an American, I’m fairly certain either would be a good improvement over that rifle.

  32. Dennis Lanning on December 7, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Dude guess you don’t like the pre-war M-70 and the pre64 m-70..
    My grand dad called those Puss Pads ..Do you need a puss Pad ? ..

  33. NORTHMAN on December 7, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Ruger all the way!

  34. Zedd Van on December 7, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    Well that’s a great comparison but now I feel like I’ve spent my money unwisely 😝

  35. DestroyingDadXx on December 7, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    I don’t own any Savage rifles so I can’t speak about them. I do have two Ruger Americans, an American Predator in 308 and an American standard rifle in 308. Both are awesome guns that my son and I use for deer hunting. They both make the “zipper” sound when you cycle the bolt but so what. They work great!
    I paid $440 for each of them and slapped a $90 Bushnell Dusk & Dawn 3-9 scope and a $20 sling on them. With a total investment of $550 per gun, They’re more than adequate for taking deer here in NH. I highly recommend them. For more info watch Who Tee Who’s videos on them.
    The only concern I have with the Rugers is the plastic rotary mags are very light and feel cheap. That being said, they work great with no problems so far. I think the newer Americans come with box style mags anyway.

  36. Ronny Izquierdo on December 7, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Awesome job with the review

  37. Misty Ramirez on December 7, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    sounds a little biased . lol

  38. john blackbird on December 7, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    I have both in 223

  39. Manny Lindo on December 7, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    Getting paid by Ruger? Lol, the bias is noticeable.

  40. Tyson Shreckengost on December 7, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    you can’t hardly even operate the guns, why would I trust your judgement on one being better

  41. Duke Makedo on December 7, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Am 2 minutes in, and the rifle caliber hasn’t been mentioned.

  42. David Settle on December 7, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    So what’s the verdict and the winner is??

  43. Dennis Burkhammer on December 7, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    i have a ruger american predator in 6.5 cm,with our hand loads my son can put 4 out of 5 in one hole at 100yrds.shoots great absolutely love it.

  44. DDD on December 7, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    I have shot both and the axis is actually superior. Both rifles chambered in 270 Winchester.
    The magazine of the ruger failed after 10 rnds. Have had to replace it 3 times in 1 year. The axis although harder to load has not failed.
    Factory Hornaday rounds, Groups were much better in the axis at 100yrds. Hand loads were close at 1.015 and 1.013.
    The 100$ price difference isnt reflected in quality in any way.

  45. John Leonard on December 7, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    I own both theses guns and just hunted ten days with both. My Axis is a 30-06 and my Ruger American is a 6.5. Both guns shoot great and are very accurate. The most noticeable thing for me is the Axis is lighter and better balanced than the Ruger. Being almost seventy years old I settled in on the Axis because of the ease of carry.

  46. Thomas Stork on December 7, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Do they offer up graded stock’s an larger size mags for either rifle

  47. Tristan Timothy on December 7, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    HAD a American. Worst POS ive ever owned. Printed 18" patterns @ 100 yards with 5 different brands of ammo. Sent it back 3 times. Ruger never reimbursed my shipping & it stayed a POS til i traded it for a brake job. I’ll never buy another ruger rifle again. When i got it new it had metal shavings still in the bore that took an hour to clean out BEFORE shooting it. Damn shame too, Best rifle i ever had was also a ruger. Old style. 300 win mag that put 3 in the same hole consistantly. Old M77.

  48. Dwayne Wood on December 7, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Recoil pad on a 243 isn’t a deal breaker there’s no recoil

  49. Jeff Scuderi on December 7, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Ruger better yet howa

  50. Corey Paulson on December 7, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Right at the beginning when you said squishy I knew this ain’t a good video to learn anything that Google wouldn’t have
