well i am going to be taking my daughter hunting for the first time next year and am looking at rifle options. was thinking 270 or 243. she is 13 now (14 in june) about 5'10 and 160# so she is not a small girl. i am looking for something that is on the lighter side on recoil. so far the biggest rifle she has shot is my 300 blackout, besides 12 gauge. but looking for something that she wont develop a flinch or be scared of the scope whacking her. i will also be bringing her cousin out for the first time next year as well and she is a little smaller of a girl, would like for them both to use the same rifle. any suggestions on rifling her? btw, looking to pick up one of these for about 350$ synthetic stock and scoped if anyone has one laying around . thats about all i can spend at the moment, i am a single father of three girls and between jobs so money is a little tight. i want to get something soon though so she gets alot of practice with it before season opener. this will also be the rifle that my twin girls use when they are old enough to hunt in a couple years.
