Modern rifles for daughters
I want to build 2 "modern" rifles for my twin daughters. They are 5 now, they won't be shooting for a few years. I'm worried I need to start now in order to get the components I want, which I'm afraid may become cost prohibitive or simply unavailable.
I ordered two AR10 lowers before back-orders were shut off on Brownells. No idea if ill see them. I'm considering alternate rifles with better parts availibility, accuracy potential, low-end recoil, 308-parent case, and room for a kid to grow into, medium to light weight. I'm not married to 308 as it seems my current brass supply may as well be the last on earth. Price not necessarily an option, but I'm not made of $. Also they could turn 15 and never touch again for all i know, so it would be nice to have ability to sell if req'd.
Looking at Rem SA rcvrs with a chassis-style stock, perhaps JP. Chambers such as 308, 260AI, 338Fed. Any other suggestions? Should I go long action and stick to 30-06 cases? What components are going to be around in the future? What would you do different? Why?
Pls move if this goes better in a different area.
