I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish but weatherstripping usually goes around the parts of the window that open allowing them to seal tightly when closed. Caulking is more a of permanent fix for a window that won't be reopened. If a window is caulked shut, all the caulking has to be removed if you decide later you want to open that window.

Yep, caulk where surfaces don't move, weather strip those that do.
