Barrel weight for the 243wssm

I am considering buying the 243 wssm Browning A Bolt. I will be using it mainly for hunting whitetail in the praries. Accuracy is important to me, but weigh is a factor also. Should I get the regular browning which weight 6lbs. or go for the heavier barrel which weighs 7lbs. I am woried that the lighter barrel will not be as accurate. Any coments or advise would be helpfull.
