So I was planning to buy my first long-range rifle, a Remington 700P in .308. It's currently around $900. Then I saw the Savage Edge, which seems to be going for around $300. I'm wondering if the Edge is a good entry level gun. My goal would be to do long-range shooting, for fun and maybe eventually competition. I'm not really a hunter. So, would the Edge be worth it to see how far I'd like to take this new hobby, or would it be a waste of money? Also, what kind of range can I expect from the Savage Edge? Is it capable of reaching out to 1000 yards? Thanks in advance.
