Re: What youth rifle for my son?
Savage SA in whatever caliber you choose. Cut the stock, Then as he grows you can rebarrel to whatever and restock. Lots of stocks and barrels cheap as castoffs. Whatever you get buy a brake too. Even a 7mm-08 will be a handful in a lightweight gun without a brake, a 300 ultra is a puppy with one. A 270 wsm or a 260 might be a good choice too.
