Which would you choose?

I am looking to sell one of these rifles but I cannot decide which one to sell. The first is a Rem 700sps stainless, in 300 WSM with a Bushnell 3200 tactical 10x40 scope on it. The second is a T/C Dimension rifle in 7mm rem mag with a SWFA SS 10x42 side focus scope. If it were you which rifle would you keep?

I'd swap the SWFA onto the 700, and sell the Dimension & Bushy combo.

Just my opinion...

Get the T/C Dimension and then a get yourself .300 Win Mag barrel for under $200 (TC Dimension Switch Barrel Bolt Action Rifle at EABCO - Interchangeable Barrels, Bolts, and Magazines Rifle System from Thompson Center Arms) and you have yourself a switch barrel rifle.

Sell a rifle?

But why?

HAHA I know selling a rifle just does not sound right but I have an agreement with my wife which states that I get to buy an AR 10 but I have to sell one of my rifles. I am leaning towards keeping the T/C. It is my newest rifle and to be honest it is the better shooter. The bolt is smoother, it shoulders better and has a heavier barrel on it ( which I like).

Sounds like you know what you want to do.
I would keep the more accurate rifle and never look back.
