So i currently have the rifle pictured in my signature. It is a Remington 700 XCR ii chambered in .270. I would like to trade it in for a more long range capable rifle. (I just have to throw the old stock on and its in mint condition) The stock i have is a Choate tactical stock that is obviously a long action stock.
The store that i am going through has a Remington 700 SPS tactical .308 with a heavy contour 20in barrel but i would not be able to use my old stock (i want to eventually go with the $500 Bell and Carlson A5 stock but right now i dont have the money to buy it)

I could also buy a normal Remington 700 SPS 300win mag with a normal carbon steel barrel. I like the long range capabilities of the 300 win mag and it would also fit my current stock. I would like a heavy barrel though to avoid having to buying a seperate heavy barrel later for added cost.

Im not entirely sure what would be the best choice. I wish they had a Remington 700 SPS long range in 300 win mag. That would be my optimal choice because its the 300 win mag round with a heavy barrel as well.
Any idea what rifle i should choose? I do a lot of deer hunting and would like long range capability (1000+ yards) Either choice im going to have to upgrade either the stock or barrel eventually. The 300 win mag i would likely upgrade the barrel first and later upgrade the stock again.
