Go for it...
I own a Savage Axis with stainless barrel in .223 and love it. Shoots good groups (on average about 1" @ 100 yards with PMC ammo) and the action is as smooth as my 110. While it may not be the best to hit a bottlecap from 500 yards, I have found it to be more than capable of handling anything I have asked it to do so far.
