I don't think it would make much difference out of the same rifle. How much shooting has this kid done? How familiar is he/she to recoil?

I was shooting a 12ga at 12 so an 06 at 16 was nothing.

there are lots of good suggestions here. take your son to the store and have him try different guns and types. 30-30 lever actions are good starter guns and have no problem dropping deer at reasonable ranges. the Savage Axis line of bolt action rifles are fine guns, accurate and priced nicely. the Marlin's X7 series of bolt action rifles are another good choice, accurate and priced nicely too. 30-06 and 270 both are excellent calibers and have proven records as calibers that are very versatile. but also give some thought to the 308, 7mm-08, 243 and the 25-06 as these are also excellent starter calibers and able to grow with the shooter as he gets older and more proficient in his shooting.

nothing wrong with going with the 30-30. excellent caliber and with Hornady's new Leverrevolution ammo, should be a good hunting rifle. there are some good lever action rifles out there.

A 30-30 is especially great for shorter ranges in heavy wooded areas. It's one of the most common rifles in the deep south, seems like almost every household has one
