700 sps or model 10 fp?

I am looking for a cheaper long range gun. I've decided to go with the .308 due to the cheaper guns more selection and the whitetail don't need anything bigger. At a local store here there is a Remington 700 SPS for 550 bucks and a Savage Model 10 FP for 500... Which of these two would better shoot me? I didn't like the stock on either, the Savage's was a bit better but the remington has more aftermarket. Remington had the new trigger and the Savage has the Accutrigger. I was thinking on basing my decision on how long the magizines are as then I can load bullets farther out and closer to the lands need be. What do you all think?

    I just bought a rem 700sps in a 308 BBL rifle and i threw on a 10X40X50mm Osprey 10 - 40x50 mm Long Range Tactical Scope, Matte Black with a harris bipod and a uncle mikes Neoprene Buttstock Shell Holders and a tactical sling it's a great tactical rifle the twist is 1 in 12 and i just like it for long range shooting.

    Since you don't like either stock, and might change down the road, the stock is a wash. I assume for the price that neither are stainless.
    Savages are nice to change barrels on easily, but I have yet to do that on a rifle , so don't know how big a plus that would be to you. With the floating boltface of the Savage there is no lugs to lap. But having said all that, I am a Remington fan. Get the Rem.SPS

    From what I've read about those rifles they both shoot great out of the box, but the savage seems to shoot a little bit more accurately than the remingtons. In either case you couldn't go wrong.
