"Rifle "problem" help"

Ok so as I'm sure I'm not alone in this, I have what I call a first world problem. I just got back from a safari where my MRC 28 Nosler took 19 animals between my buddy and myself and impressed the hell out of me. I also took a custom 300wsm loaded with 190 VLDs that took 7 animals as well as could be asked. Seeing as how I have a problem with always wanting new rifles, as a lot of us do haha, I'm considering selling the 300wsm in favor of buying/building a lighter 28 Nosler to go with my heavier MRC 28 Nos. The other option would be to keep the 300wsm, upgrade the scope with something lighter and maybe try and get a lighter stock. The 300wsm is a M70 CRF action, B&C stock, and 22" shilen barrel with muzzle break.

Something else of note is that my MRC has a 1/9.5" twist so I can't load 195vld's in it. I shot all my animals with factory 160AB Nosler loads and they didn't disappoint.

So here's the question, do I keep the 300wsm and tweak it, or do I consider selling it to buy something like a Christensen arms Ridgeline in 28 Nosler or build one?

Keep the 300 WSM , scope and stock it as you wish. You can always rebarrel the 28 if you prefer heavy bullets.

I think the MRC X2 is tough to beat for a build platform, short of a full custom of course.

I know it's odd circumstances, but I have 1st hand experience with both rifles.
