    Looking to get some suggestions on youth model .243 for a buddy of mine. He will be using it mainly to shoot coyotes on his ranch in Nebraska. Thanks in advance!

    Budget?

    Small budget- Ruger american 325.00 'ish
    Non issue- Steyr mountain SBS prohunter,(And remove all the stock butt plate spacers) Can also do a bolt on mod to have ten round detachable mag. Neat rifles.

    Small budget. I was thinking Savage or Ruger.

    I looked at all the entry level guns for my youngest boy, The Ruger American was hands down the best built gun (with great reviews to match). I bought him a 7mm-08 and have zero regrets.

    I think he is leaning towards the Ruger. I appreciate the help!
