First of all your 200 action for the most part a shot action pre-98 Savage.
As it sets it be anything up to a 308 length cartridge with .47x" casehead with only a barrel swap. Your 22-250 mag will work as-is.
You can go to something with a .378", 17 Rem, 222,223 and etc with a bolthead, mag and extended front baffle.
No, you can't go to the Edge for a number of reasons.
I don't recommend you go with anything in the Improved configuration. Sometimes they can be tricky to get to feed from the staggered mags, very doable, but require some tweaking.
Your 200 will also have the 4.25" action screw spacing and a blind magazine attached to the action. If you decide to get a new stock you'll need to make sure you get one for a Savage or Stevens in that configuration.
There are also two different barrel thread diameters refereed to as the small and large shank. The small shank has a 1.055" diameter thread, the large 1.120", both are a 20 pitch. Your 200 has the smaller 1.055, so when buying barrel make sure you get the small shank.
