Re: Low recoil rifle for whitetails and coyotes. Opinions?
The .257 Roberts is a great older classic round much under rated for what it is capable of doing on deer and varmints. It is also about perfect for a young man or lady to shoot correctly with little recoil. The 6.5x47 Lapua is also a great newer round to consider, high BC bullets, accurate and again low recoil.
If you buy the .257 Roberts I have a Redding type S match die set I'd like to sell, w/ a bushing and I'll through in 200 pieces of once fired Remington brass and 85 117 gr. SST Hornady bullets to get you started.
Either way stick with something a woman will love to shoot, not hate it with every pull of the trigger!
