    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?

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

    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 !
