thinking of buying a bolt action rifle for my son for this deer season. rifle season is coming soon, so i'll have to jump on it fast and get him to an acceptable level of accuracy with it before we go out. he can handle my savage .308, but carrying it around is another story. so is shooting from anything other than a bench. it's a bit much for his frame. i know there is a lot of debate on .223/5.56 as an acceptable caliber for whitetail. plenty of folks do it, but it has drawbacks. i'm not certain i trust his shooting to that level yet, so one of our ARs is probably out of the question. what about 300blk? i could get an upper for one of the ARs pretty cheap and run with that for him. this is what i'm leaning toward. any other youth rifle suggestions that won't put me in the poor house?
