varmint rifle

i have been looking into a varmint/medium game animal. I was thinking of the new remington vtr in .308 or a weatherby submoa vanguard in the same caliber i would also like some input on what type of glass to put on it.

The 308 Win. is a great cartridge. What bullets are you planning on using?

Why not a Savage model 12? The accutrigger is awsome. That's what my .308 is. I've got a Super Sniper 10x with a mil dot. More adjustment and clearer than a Mark 4 and only $300. $400 if you want the side focus. Just my opinion.

The accutriggers take getting used to. Once you get used to them they're pretty nice I think. You could always get an aftermarket trigger and have the barrel cut and recrowned.
