    Ok guys I'm looking for another rifle and I saw the new savage edge. I was thinking about getting it in 7mm-08, any thoughts about the rifle or the cartridge? Thanks.

    The Edge is supposedly a little more of a "budget" rifle

    the cartridge is a great all-around caliber, my dad, brother and i all have it and have taken down many deer and i shot a nice black bear with it about 6 years ago. as for the rifle i dont know much about it but i know savage is making some great products now, should be right there with remington and winchester with quality

    the Savage edge is a decent rifle. Savage did a decent job when designing the rifle, the only down side is the trigger itself. Horrible out of the box. My 223 shoots great, but the trigger feels like it's a 10 pound trigger. I know a few smiths that have gone in and honed the internals and made it a little better but not much.

    RifleBasix now makes a replacement trigger that is adjustable from 1.5 pounds to 3 pounds. Downside is that the replacement trigger will run you about 150.00.

    Add the two together and you've got 400-450 into the rifle. You might be able to find a used Savage with the accu-trigger for that kind of money.

    Yah, I read about that trigger being "heavy" in the complete rifleman magazine.
