.308 isn't a bad choice, but the .260 Rem would be an even better choice and uses the same case.
Faster, flatter, and does both with higher BC bullets, and recoil isn't a consideration at all even for a kid or woman.
The only advantage I see with the .308 is the availability of cheap plinking ammo.
