I have a 270 WSM, Browning A-bolt. Great gun, only wish shells were less than $50 for 20.
Kind of wish I had the dame gun in 308.

What about a gun that my 12 year d would feel comfortable shooting as well?

.243 or 7mm.

I was using my dads. 30-30 and my uncles. 30-06 at 12 yrs old.

Yeah, it was just an interest when all of the short mags got big a couple of years ago. I really don't have anything that I don't use at least once a year. Don't really want to drop a G on one unless I win the power ball

Based off my thread I started (LINK), the 30-06 would be the best caliber.

All things considered, the 30-30 sounds like the gun for you. I'm surprised that Downshift doesn't agree considering he's a 30-30 fan.

44mag handi rifle for kids. Can be used during primative season as well. Simple and effective to 100 yards.

rem 700 in 270 if you've never shot before.

30-06 or .308 if you're familiar

Many years ago I read an article by one of my all time favorite hunting writers, John Wootters. The title was something like, "Seven (or it may have been eight) Deer Rounds to Start and Finish With." The idea was to name deer rounds a youth could start deer hunting w/, yet continue to use in adult hood. IIRC, he liked the 250 Savage, 7X30 Waters, 7-08, 6.5X55, 30-30, 300 Savage and possibly 260 Remington. Those are all fine guns. W/ the advent of factory reduced recoil rounds, I think one could reasonably add the 270 Win, 308 Win, 30-06 and 25-06. When faced w/ the same scenario years ago, I bought my 12 y/o son a 308 Win.

Use reduced recoil loads, have a nice recoil pad installed on the butt plate, me sure the stock fits him well, use ear muffs AND plugs at the range and consider using a "sissy" bag when shooting on the bench and your son should be fine.

Anybody shoot a .270WSM? I have wanted to get one for a while but couldn't really justify it since I already have a .30-06 and 30-30



I do Browning X Bolt

Shoots .25 inch group of 3 at 100 yards

Don't really have a place to take a long shot though

Use 7mm-08 most of the time

I am a .30-30 fan, but for an all around rifle you can't beat the 7mm-08 when kids are using it.
