Rem 700 sps v or Sav 112BVSS

Ok guys I know your getting tired of my asking question here. I have it down to a Rem 700 sps varmint in 243 or a Sav 112BVSS in 25-06.
Out of the two which would you go for?

I will be mostly be hunting PD and antelope with this gun.

I have a Rem 7mm for longer ranges on antelope/deer.

Thanks for all your help. car

I'm a huge Savage fan. With that said, both would do the job. I'd consider a Savage 110 FCP-K in 25-06.

A Savage 12 VLP in a .243! Only a few dollars more than the BVSS. The .243 will offer better bullets with a better BC for wind control and long range accuracy. Any reason you are hung up on the 112BVSS in 25-06? The Remmy you will need to get a better stock for. I am reading a lot of guys are really complaining about how flimsy it is.

Don't get me wrong. I think the 25-06 is a great caliber. I have hunted with one on several occasions. Wouldn't be afraid to buy one. Too bad they don't offer any High BC bullets without having to purchase a wildcat bullet.

P.S. Go with the Savage. No stock needed, no trigger work required. A little barrel break in and go shoot something!

I too love the quarter bores, but the 243 is a great caliber and will recoil less if that is an issue.
I like the 25-06 for most any mid-sized game in side of 500 yds as it is flat shooting and versatile enough to use on varmints. A muzzle brake would lessen felt recoil and allow better shot sighting at distance. Just depends upon what you want/need. No arguments from me of the 25-06 though

I initially suggested that, but when I looked on Savage website, they don't show the BVSS in .243 anymore and so suggested the 12 VLP. I know they use to make it. If car can find one, by all means go ahead and get it. I think either two of these rifles are going to be a solid winner in anybody's gun cabinet.

On Savages web site it list a 12 vlp-dbm only.

I do know about the stock on the rem. Read it many times on just about all hunting web site.

I would like to keep my cost to $500 to $600 not counting stock replacement.
