Default Need help want a new rifle

Right now I have 2 rifles. A lever action .270 and a bolt action .243 both Browning. The .270 is all wood and is so damn heavy compared to my .243 but it has a far better scope. The .243 is nice because its a lot lighter but I have trouble seeing anything as soon as the sun starts setting. Also when I have longer shots, anything over 200 yards the .270 is a lot better, but again its so damn cumbersome. I have shot a BAR before and thats about what my .270 reminds me of.

I want a lightweight rifle that I can shoot long distances with. Money is of no concern. I assume composite is the way to go? Also whats the best scope I can possibly get? Im sick of big deer walking out 10 mins before pitch dark at 250 yards and not being able to take a shot because I cant see them.
