What to build for daughter ?

I'm wanting to build my daughter a rifle to deer hunt I want to build something she won't out grow i have decided on 3 calibers 6mm rem , 6mm x 284 . 240 whby i reload so ammo cost is not a issue & i'm only interested in these 3 calibers so tell me what you think & don't hold nothing back give me your best shot !

Did you write off .243 and 6.5 creedmoore?
How did you come to those calibers? Out of the ones you listed 6x284 would be my choice based on the performance we've seen with 6.5x284.

I need more information. How old is your daughter now? What size deer are going to hunt? What would be the typical range deer will be shot.

I'm with the other here. Much more info needed.

How old is the kid? How tall/wt?

I'd personally be looking at the .260 Rem or 6.5 creedmore for deer at under 600yds with the average girl doing the shooting.

If you are stuck on those I'd go with either the 6mm Rem or 6x284.
