That's an excellent plan.

The 243 is an awesome cartridge, so many have cut there teeth on them and still use them I would also add if you look at Savages is to look at the 250-3000, it is a deer slayer an my daughter will more than likely start shooting deer and elk with it also.

Re: Rifle for my Grand Daughter

I use a 243 for the 2nd centerfire rifle when teaching kids to shoot.
A Rem Mld 7 is the perfect rifle if you want a bolt action.
The NEF with a heavy bbl is a less expensive rifle.
Both good for kids, very little felt recoil.
Try some 87grn V-Max or the Sierra 85BTHP for deer.
