I probably wouldn't buy the Axis and the Ruger hasn't been around long enough to have a good service record. The Vanguard is a bit heavy for my likes.
If I couldn't buy a Tikka or Remington 700, I might buy a Ruger American, but don't like how they fit me and how the forend feels bumpy.
People are like rifles. Some are tried and true, having great eyes, personality, and fun to be with. Others never seem to hit the mark with you. Still others go off half-cocked. Still, it's nice to know most of them.
