Ok- I just did some more looking and I think the Savage 11 FCNS .308 is what i would be interested in. Has detachable mag, accu-trigger and accu-stock. Sells for $565 at buds so should be about that at my local shop. It is better looking to my eye than the axis but still wondering if it is worth the extra money. I can't justify an extra $100 for stainless steel. They need to be cleaned either way and I already have my Ruger all-weather for when it's really nasty. I will keep researching.
