Nuff said. You all have a nice day.

Calm down children. Lets stick to the thread... I've lost track of how many times that's been said because of you two.

A good 270 Remington 700 series rifle. If money isn't a problem, a ruger no.1 or ar-10 308.

a 270 might be a bit much if the OP is a small 15 year old kid.

and the OP is 15 years old.

Marlin X-7 series, caliber is chosen per the game available...
but the way the rifle is made, Felt Recoil is reduced greatly...so a .30-06 feels more like a .270
so a smaller individual will find them VERY easy to handle, which leads to greater shooting enjoyment...
which leds to more fun, more guns, and more family time

Best part, they start at $299...and are Sub-MOA from the box. Can't be beat by rifles priced lower than $1500...and more than a few higher.

My Tikka T3 begs to differ, and yes I owned an XS-7, while it was a tight shooter granted my T3 Stainless is considerably more accurate and ALOT more refined. I bought my Tikka on sale and got it for less then my Marlin cost.
Not knocking the Marlin just saying that if you think the XS/XL rifles are the only ones that will shoot sub-moa out the box you are dead wrong I currently have five bolt guns from four manufactures, all factory stock and the worst of them shoots 1/2 MOA.

Apex is right. I haven't seen a tikka yet that was inaccurate. I own two myself one super varmint in 22-250 and an m-55 in 243. Either of the two will not be leaving my side without a hell of a fight.

Can't be beat ?

Exaggerate much? My Venture shoots MOA all day long with anything I feed it.

Plus it actually has a removable magazine, adj trigger, lifetime warranty, etc.

Blind mags suck.

Try a Remington 700 adl in .243, 7mm-08, or .308 if you can handle the kick.

The 700 youth (BDL bottom metal) comes in 7-08 RH or LH. You can add or remove spacers on the stock as needs dictate. I does not get any better than that. It is my 'go to' Deer gun. I took the spacers out and my 11 year old grandson shot his first animal (a hog) with it. Spacers back in, now it's mine again!!!
