Don't leave the .257 roberts out of the mix fellas.

Same family as all of the others mentioned. Heavier bullets than the 243 but not as heavy as your 6.5's with similar recoil to the 260 and 243. Its all a personal preference thing. Any of those will work as long as she practices and hits animals in the right spots. Its all about being competent with what you have.

You could load some Berger 140 VLD's with 39.0gr of Varget and that would be an excellent deer load, too.

Only reason I didn't use Bergers is b/c I don't have any 140's (just 168's and 180's), and that gun has always been sighted in from the very beginning for 139-140gr bullets.

Im in the process of getting a 7mm-08 built-up! Stiller action; Brux barrel...Jewell trigger...laminated stock by Stockys. Hoping it will be as nice as the others Ive had put together

Hit her in the shoulder as hard as you can, then the recoil will feel very LIGHT.

Re: What's the recoil like?

For older gents with bad shoulders the 7mm-08 comes highly recommended for ballistic performance to 300 yds. Weight of the rifle and the quality of a recoil pad will be a huge factor in recoil reduction. For example my 7.5 Lb (unscoped) TC Icons in 308, 30-06 produce neglible recoil. Then again I never shoot off hand at game, always use some sort of additional support under the elbow.
