    Has anyone seen these yet? MSRP is $329 or $379 with a scope. I see they come in a range of different calibers.

    For a range gun, which caliber would be most cost effective?? The .223 or the .308?

    Depends on how much you shoot and how thick your wallet is. Shot for shot, feeding a .223 is a lot cheaper than feeding a .308. Haven't got my hands on an Edge yet but I noticed it doesn't have Accu-Trigger or Accu-Stock.

    It caught my eye because of the word "budget"! Yes, I saw the review on GunBlast. He's shooting the .243.

    I thought the .308 might be cheaper because isn't the a NATO round that I could buy in bulk?

    MrBill,

    NATO 7.62X51 is indeed a round that can be found in bulk. It's not always available however and not exactly cheap although often less than commercial ammo to be sure. The last batch I bought was 320 rounds of "Royal Ordnance Radway Green" NATO stamped ammo for $172 delivered working out to just shy of 54 cents/round. (From Classic Arms )

    I'd consider that pretty good stuff for NATO ammo. There are also lessor producers of 7.62X51, not all NATO stamped and not all high quality.

    If the Edge is their budget line, where does that leave Stevens?

    The only thing that caught my eye in a bad way was that the magazine release is part of the magazine and is a piece of plastic bent into a "U" shape. I wondered how many times the magazine could be taken out before the plastic became hard and brittle. Especially on a cold 17 degree day.

    There are still Stevens 200 on the shelves with a staggered feed magazine. Unfortunately I couldn't find one in the caliber I wanted. Went with a Howa 1500 instead.

    I have seen their model Savage 111 with the synthetic stock, it's about $50 more and looks about the same, but appears to have a better magazine release.
