RAR 300 blackout vs Remington 700 SPS 300 Blackout

I was hoping to find the Ruger Laminate Compact in 7.62x39 but I don't' think I will ever find one for less than $1000...

So this new RAR in 300 blackout may be the next best thing.

Doing some research I came across the Remington 700 SPS in 300 blk. The Remmy is about $600. Pretty much the same configuration with (IMO) the nicer Hogue stock.

Any thoughts on the Ruger vs the Remington?

I'm sure most will say that the Remington is a better rifle but I guess it depends on what you are wanting the rifle for.

I am thinking about getting the Ruger Predator in .308 or the Ranch in 300BLK to replace my Remington 700 LTR 308. The Remington 700 LTR is just too heavy for me to carry around all day hunting. At 7.5lb plus scope and ammo the LTR is not so light. The Ruger Predator 308 is over a pound lighter at 6.25lb and the Ranch is even lighter at 5.90lb. That sounds good to me, but I like the stock on my 700 and I have heard that the Ruger American does not have the greatest stock although their bedding system gets great reviews.

I guess if you are more concerned with punching holes in paper in tiny groups from a bench then maybe the Remington is better. There are also a plethora of aftermarket accessories for the Remington. The Ruger wins the weight battle and will not hurt your wallet as much but if you are a tinkerer then you will have to wait for a while until the aftermarket people get onto the Ruger American.

I am thinking about transitioning to the 300BLK from the .308 and the Ruger Ranch has my attention. For deer and coyote hunting here is PA, the ranges are pretty short. I often feel that the .308 is a bit overkill in this area. The 300BLK is very efficient with short range hunting and I'm a fan of quiet things and the 300BLK is much easier to reload to subsonic and is optimized for a suppressor.
