That sounds like great advice! You would only need to reload for one caliber and the .270 should meet all of your needs. Again, I am partial to my 7 rem mag and I do think the 7mm-08 is a great round, but getting another .270 would keep your life simpler...

How do you like her Tikka? If you like it, I wouldn't change manufacturers. I've got a Tikka in 270 it shoots great. I never get to use it anymore because the kid won't shoot anything else.

Re: Need Lightweight Recommendation

I just got her Leupold transferred over to the new rifle and have yet to sight it in. I think life would be too boring for us both to have the same caliber. I am leaning towards a .260 at the moment, but if I cannot find a rifle that feels good, then I will probably go with a Tikka in a 26.06 or 7mm mag. My love is antelope hunting, but will probably go on a few more cow elk hunts until my daughter goes away to college. By then, my younger daughter may be ready to rifle hunt!
