The kid's gonna want to spend some trigger time with the gun.

Youngsters are like that. The Combloc ammo's the cheapest, now.

I know I'm a little late...


...but for hunting (and really any other use of a firearm) marksmanship is far more important that the size of your bullet.

My dad started me off at about that age with a .243 and I used that until I was in my 30s with great success. A .243 bullet placed in the cardiac cavity is pretty much meat-on-the-table.

Now, if you want to start him with a bigger round I think the felt recoil will have a lot to do with the rifle as much as the round. For 15 years I hunted with a Savage .243 with a maple stock. About 10 years ago I moved to a Winchester model 70 in .270 with a Synthetic stock and I was really surprised at how similarly the two guns felt with regard to recoil. Wood is purdy and all that but I am sold on synthetics now. From a functional standpoint I think they are far superior to wood.

Good post,it dosent matter ig you shoot a 243,or a 458, if u cant put the bullet in the boiler room. Now in my own thought I do disagree with the bullet size part it does matter. No hunter that truly loves the persuit of game would ever chance improper caliber use. To light is simply to light. Most small caliber rounds less than 100 grains,are simply varmit rounds that are designed to rapidly expand therefore u do not get the expansion needed for clean kills that, as hunters we must strive for. Thats my .02 on bullets tho
