Thanks everyone for the info and advice. My goal was to see which is a more accurate shooter at the range, but winter came to quick, and since I live in Wisconsin January at the range is no fun, so that is why I asked here. All the cowboy side matches I have encountered have been steel targets but being a bit of a perfectionist, I would like a rifle that has the best groupings I can get. I do have a vernier rear sight and a globe front that I will make work from an old Rolling Block project I had.I know it is a bit of overkill at the distances that most side matches are, but again, I am a bit of a perfectionist. I may have to wait for warmer weather to make my decision but appreciate the info given.
