Then define your goal - what is long range to you, how heavy do you want it, how much experience do you have? For many people (not saying it's you) long range is 300 yards. For some on this site that's just a warm up.
How did you arrive at the decision that those two rifles were the right ones? Both excellent rifles, though.
And is it worth paying a gunsmith a small amount to swap stocks for you and bed the rifle? Often $125 can get it done and you'll have a better rifle.
FYI - since the previous "Sub-MOA" version of the Vanguard has been renamed the "Range Certified" model and changed from tan to green you may find some Sub-MOA models at discount. Davidson's was running them on special last month.
