Get him something nice. Model 7 in 7mm-08, 243, or 260 are all great choices. Theres a Model 7 .260 at Buckhorns in Oneida right now for 500.

.243 or 7mm-08 - and one of the least expensive guns will be the single shot H&R/NEF. Stick a Leupold Rifleman 3x9 (or VX-1) on it with some Warne rings. Also get a GOOD set of shooting sticks.

Here ya go http://www.thegunsource.com/store/item.aspx?PID=6827

Whatever you do stay away from the superlight NEF models. They are very finicky. Get the blued/walnut and you will be fine.
