the processor dug a 243 bullet out of one of BOWd's deer. i still don't like the 243 for inexperienced shooters/hunters.

243's are underrated. The 85 grain bthp game king is an awesome bullet for the 243. It is super accurate and deadly on deer. I load this for my son, wife and some older gents at church who are tired of the kick. Call sierra bullets and ask them about the 243! Also the barnes tsx is another deadly shooter without much kick.

Another plus is the predator/ varmint ammo available for the 243. Hornady has a 58g vmax that is deadly explosive on yotes and barely kicks at all. Definately a one gun and done for a 12 year old.

Yeah, I haven't put alot of thought into that but I guess I would be a supporter of any caliber that you can shoot groundhogs all the way up to deer with. Seems like a sound investment to me.

at age 12 he might be able to sholder regular size gun. My son shoots a model 7 Rem. youth, but this yr he didn't shoot my Rem. model 700, but it did fit him pretty well. He is turning 10 in Febuary. Just a thought !
