My son just turned 10 years old. He has been shooting .22's and his little .410 for a couple of years now. I am looking to get him his first deer rifle. Just not sure which one to go with. He is a little guy @ 55# right now. The length of pull on most of the "youth" rifles is just to long. He needs something in the 11.5" range. The other factor is that money is an issue. I don't want to buy him junk but I also can't afford any kind of custom rifle
. Any ideas on what would be a good starting out rifle? I am thinking 7mm-08 as a caliber but not completely set on that.
