Re: Hunting Gun
The 308 is excellent for deer, but depending on your size for 14 maybe to much recoil. I started my sons on the 308 and 30-06 but reloaded them to reduced (youth) rounds and slowly worked them up to full power loads as they grew up. If you know someone (like your Dad) who reloads, I sugjest using H4895 starting at 60% of listed max charge for the bullet weight. This isa good load out to 150, maybe 200 yards. Get a Hogdon manual or vist their site. Good hunting!
