Hi fellas, another question here... I want to get an affordable plinking rifle for my girlfriend so that she can shoot with me (by affordable I mean no more than $250 for rifle alone). She says she wants something that won't throw her for a loop (she has back and shoulder pain fairly often), so a small to medium sized cartridge is ideal. She doesn't want anything high-powered like .30-06 or .308, but if I know her she isn't going to want something wimpy either. That rules out .22LR in my opinion (no offense to fans of .22LR). I figured that .223 Remington would be a good choice, maybe .17HMR? The rifle would have to come with iron sights, as my budget does not allow glass. I'm pretty sure that the action wouldn't really be an issue. BTW she is 5'5", can't tell you her weight she'd kill me Not fat by any means but not a twig either... strong woman. So, which cartridge and corresponding rifle would you recommend?
