Thanks guys for the replies. My nephew asked me twice if the gun was really his.
He really likes the idea of reloading as well, so another convert joins the flock!
It will be a good reason for him to get out of the house during the "boring" winter. (He will be coming over here to reload and to shoot as well.)
He did go out with another friend of the family's and shot his first 2 honkers this past Sunday. When he puts his mind to something, he doesn't back down - it was -2*F with a wind chill in the mid -20's that morning.
He will be spending a few hours on the computer comparing scopes (I imagine) and he'll probably make up his mind in a week or less. The trigger is kinda creepy, so I'll do some looking to see if I can adjust it without some serious work.
