how accurate will this be?

Wanting to get started in some long range shooting. I do a little hunting and would like to extend my range a bit. Not sure if I will try to compete yet. It sounds interesting, but sooooo much to learn.
So my question is this: I'm going to buy a Remington 700 SPS in 300 Weatherby. I have wanted a good gun in this caliber for a long time now, so if I want to compete I will need to get another gun, which is fine. On to the question, what kind of real world accuracy can I expect from this setup? I have a range on our farm out to 600 yards. What kind of groups can I expect at this distance and would I be able to go out to 1000 yards with practice? I consider myself a good shooter, which of course holds the most bearing on accuracy. The scope will be a Leupold VXIII unless you folks have a better idea for me. Any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

They don't make the SPS in .300 Weatherby, do they? Is this a special run or something?

Groups? Hard to say out that far. What's easy to say is that it won't be fun finding out, unless you use a gun vise or something.
