get him a 300 win mag. a good muzzle break will make anything a dream to shoot. It gives your the power for just about anything you want and its flat shooting enough
I think a .300 WM even with a good MB is a tad too much too early for a young hunter with a negative experience below ...

I thought if I pushed on the recoil pad with my thumbs when he shot everything would be fine (didn't work out so well). Poor kid remembers that experience to this day.
If it is not fun for him to shoot, it will not be effective.
