    uhm, i was looking at rifles i was interested in buying, and i was mostly interested in the remington 700 sps tactical and a weatherby vangaurd both in .308. i was wondering if anyone could tell me reasonably which would be better. im wanting it to long range shoot and possibly hunt with. wanting accuracy and under 600$

    DB - we have a section of this forum specifically devoted to rifles - you'd really be better off asking this over there.

    Don't bother making a new post over there though - at the bottom left of your original post, there should be a little icon that looks like an exclamation point inside a red triangle. Click that, and it will bring you to a box you can type in. If you request that this thread be moved to the appropriate section, a Moderator will take care of it for you.

    Good luck!

    MANY GREAT reveiws on the SPS Tac. www.snipercentral.com

    He has a good reveiw on the SPS, and posibly the Vanguard.

    Hope it works out for you! :)

    The Vanguard would probably be better, it has proven accuracy, and you might get one that shoots Sub-MOA, so go with the Vanguard.

    I'd pick the Vanguard as a hunting rifle (I have a Vanguard Sporter). It's accurate and has a locking bolt (which I consider a must-have for hunting).

    For a target rifle, the Tactical offers more, but I wouldn't choose it for hunting.

    They share the same scope base. Both have long leade to rifling.
    Both are nice. I think the Remington has the edge due simply to popularity.
    The barrel profiles will be different. Kind of depends a bit on what Vangaurd model also.

    My brother ended up with a Vanguard & is a bit impressed by it. He has an older 700, before synthetic was common.

    PM sent with some more details
