New long range rifle?

I am looking for a good hunting rifle and I have my eye on a Weatherby Vanguard S2 in 300 WSM. I have two questions though.
First given the choice between a Weatherby and a Remington SPS which would you choose? I would upgrade the stock to a B&C stock on either but which would be the more accurate rifle?
Second I have a SAS 30 cal supressor, how will affect a sporter weight barrel with the supressor attached? Your thought please?

Bob

Have you looked at any savage rifles? Best bang for your buck IMHO.

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Re: New long range rifle?

May I suggest a Tikka T3 Lite in 300 WSM ?

Very accurate out of the box, even with factory loads, light enough to climb mountains with and enough power to dump big bull moose on the spot,
becoming a fast favorite of many hunters and aftermarket accessories are readily available

this one is not going away for a long time !
