The 18-135 wr is much, much better than the 50-300 wr between 18 and 50mm, and the 50-300 wr is vastly superior to the 18-135 wr between 135 and 300mm.
Very different lenses. Apples and oranges.

If you are looking for a great weather sealed all walk around lens that will be in the rang most people use 90% of the time, is good and decently sharp, silent and fast focusing, then the 18-135, if one for longer distance shots for wildlife, the moon, etc then the 55-300. As was said earlier, the two lenses are for completely different scenarios. I'd get the 18-135 first, then get the 55-300 after.
