Based on your needs. I would recommend the 7/08 for several reasons.
1= The rifles that are available in 7/08 are many.
2= The ammo that is available (Lots of choices ) and in the Remington ammo you can get
the Managed Recoil for youth and people that cant handle the recoil.
3= If you reload you can get brass cheap and in several caliber's (243,260,7/08,308) and resize
if you have to.
Even though we like them the controlled feed actions are more difficult for the beginner to master
than the push feeds are.
Also I would recommend a lighter bullet,Something around 140 or 160.
Just my opinion
