    I am looking to sell one of these rifles but I cannot decide which one to sell. The first is a Rem 700sps stainless, in 300 WSM with a Bushnell 3200 tactical 10x40 scope on it. The second is a T/C Dimension rifle in 7mm rem mag with a SWFA SS 10x42 side focus scope. If it were you which rifle would you keep?

    I'd swap the SWFA onto the 700, and sell the Dimension & Bushy combo.

    Just my opinion...

    Get the T/C Dimension and then a get yourself .300 Win Mag barrel for under $200 (TC Dimension Switch Barrel Bolt Action Rifle at EABCO - Interchangeable Barrels, Bolts, and Magazines Rifle System from Thompson Center Arms) and you have yourself a switch barrel rifle.

    HAHA I know selling a rifle just does not sound right but I have an agreement with my wife which states that I get to buy an AR 10 but I have to sell one of my rifles. I am leaning towards keeping the T/C. It is my newest rifle and to be honest it is the better shooter. The bolt is smoother, it shoulders better and has a heavier barrel on it ( which I like).

    Sounds like you know what you want to do.
    I would keep the more accurate rifle and never look back. :D

    +1! Not to mention, if you get rid of it, you'll have to change your screen name. :D

    Keep the one you like the most. As with any sale you do in your lifetime, you're going to regret it. No way around that.

    If my wife gave me an ultimatum like that, I'd likely find a really good hidey hole somewhere, and let her know that I had gotten rid of that "extra" rifle. Then we'd have a good, long discussion about her excess of shoes...

    Also, if you get purely swap barrel set-ups, say for example the TC, the AR, and maybe an Encore, you'd be set for all kinds of different calibers without having to buy a new gun. Just switching out barrels should keep you busy for a while. Kind of like changing shoelaces or insoles... (my wife has a problem.)
