Review Category: Hunting Gear Misc
Purchase: Hunting Gear Misc I purchased a new bolt action .308 cal hunting rifle on the internet via(gunbroker) to take on a hunting trip in Spain. My intention was to buy the most inexpensive gun just in case there were problems with confiscations at customs in or out of the country or theft.
Things I like about the Steven's 200 hunting rifle .308 Model 200 Hunting Gear Misc: The Steven's Model 200 .308 hunting rifle with 20" barrel is very light in weight which makes it excellent for carrying long distances. This was important for my purchase since I would be walking 5-10 miles per day hunting Mouflon rams in Spain. I topped the rifle with a 3x9 Nikon BDC scope that performed flawlessly and deems a review all its own. After shooting the rifle at my local shooting range at 100, 200 & 300 yard incruments I found that the accuracy was better than 75% of the other .308 rifles I own and that cost twice as much. WOW!!! Using Winchester ammo, my groups were all touching at 100 yards. Three inches at 200 yards and 6" at 300 yards. Reloads were even better but only comercial ammo can be taken out of the country.
What I don't like about the Steven's 200 hunting rifle .308 Model 200 : After shooting 100 rounds the stock came loose from the bedding trunnion but was easily tightend and has not come loose since.
Hunting Gear Misc Model 200 quality: The rifle is definately low luster but as simple as it gets. Recoil is typical of a light rifle but didn't deter me from shooting 100 rounds per visit at the range each time. Function was flawless and with 5 rounds in the rifle you have follow up shots if needed.
Model 200 summary: I do a lot of hunting/shooting and accuracy is the most important aspect of the sport. I shot my full curl Mouflon Ram at 225 yards and dropped him in his tracks the fifth day of hunting. The outfitter (CAZATUR) I hunted with was the most suprised and said he would recommend this rifle to his clients and was thinking about buying one as a loaner to future clients as well.
