Questions & Answers for Savage Arms Savage Axis Rifle, .223 Rem

Question

That still didn't answer my question. Even other brands of .223 shells might say ".223 Rem" on them and I heard from a gunshop that Rem meant Remingto

There's something significant about the Rem designation. I'd just like to know what. When my rifle wouldn't fire one brand a gunshop owner told me well it might shoot Remington. Did he mean Remington .223 or any Brand that had ".223 Rem" listed on the box. It's very confusing. Luckily he took the rifle back and I'm in the market for a new one, that's why I came to this site.

The brand of shell will not make a difference as to whether or not it will work in the rifle. What will matter is the quality of the shell. Some manufacturers will make a very high quality shell that will cost a little more and use a better burning powder that won't cause problems with the gun. Other will do the opposite. Remington, as you mentioned, is a better quality shell and powder. This is probably why the gunshop said it may work better in your gun.

That is just the name of the cartridge. The rifle will shoot any brand of ammo chambered in .223 Rem. That said, some rifles prefer certain brands of ammo over others. Try a couple different brands to find the one most accurate for your specific rifle.

I'll try to answer this if I can. The ".223 Remington" designation describes both the caliber (.223) and the cartridge size and shape (Remington). Many ammo manufacturers make cartridges that conform to that specification and all should work in any rifle chambered for that ammo. Do not let anyone tell you that 5.56 NATO is the same as .223 Remington. The 5.56 round is a higher pressure load and should not be used in a rifle that is built for .223 ammo even though it will fit in the chamber - you could damage your rifle and your face. You can shoot .223 in a rifle built for 5.56 but not the other way around.

Well .223 Remington is the caliber designation. 5.56 x 45mm is the NATO nomenclature. Same external dimensions.

What do you mean by it wouldn't fire them? Pull the trigger and nothing happened? That sounds really odd. I have had a few semi-autos that didn't like foreign steel-shelled ammo. They still went "bang," though. Just didn't function reliably.

Ok it says .223 Rem . . . Does that mean it will only shoot Remington brand cartridges? I recently had problems shooting certain brands with a .223

It will shoot any brand of .223 shell including the NATO 5.56.
Remington just gets a plug from the manufacturer I would guess in pushing their ammo.

Any ammo marked ".223 Remington" should work in this rifle no matter who manufactures it. 5.56 NATO is not the same as .223 Remington and should not be used in a rifle built for .223 even though it will fit in the chamber - you risk damaging your rifle and possible personal injury. 5.56 NATO rounds deliver higher chamber pressures than .223 ammo and should only be used in rifles built for that ammo.

REM does in fact refer to Remington. They were the first company to produce this ammunition. Other designations include 5.56mm NATO. All are made to the REM standard.

I just bought a Savage Axis in 223 for $300 at Presleys in Bartonville, IL. I wouldn't pay more than $350 if you ask me. The magazine holds 5 rounds. The guy told me it will hold only 3 and that's what others say but mine holds 5 rounds.

The magazines I have found going for as low as $30 each online. Stores will charge you $40 and up. I'm a bargain shopper so I try to find the lowest prices all the time while staying with quality.

I highly recommend this rifle! I am daggone accurate at up to 300 yards now with the stock Bushnell 3-9x40 scope using 55gr 223 FMJ's.

According to the manufacturer (Savage) all of their rifles chambered for the .223 cartridge are also suitable for use with the 5.56 NATO ammunition (5.56x45).

Yes it will take the 5.56 shell. The NATO 5.56 is the same as the .223 dimensionally. Grain of shot will change but will not change what gun can shoot it.

It is a .223 Rem Cal which is also a 5.56 mm round. This is a very popular round as it is the standard ammunition used by the US Army and NATO forces in the M-16/M-4.

You are looking for a savage model 24, and Savage no longer makes them. Your best option is to check your local gun stores. You might also write a letter to savage and let them know what you want, with enough interest they may bring it back.
Savage does make a new model 42 in .410 under .22 LR and / or .22 Mag.

This was a Walmart special run from Savage Arms. The number is from Savage/Walmart and it is not listed on the Savage site. It is a true 1-7 twist. I have one myself. It will shoot the larger gn bullets 69gn to 90gn but I recommend the 69 -77 for best shots on the bullseye. I only wish this was the 26" tube and it had a accu. trigger. I hope this helps.
