i think you should reconsider your needs.
for what your considering a 308 win would be enough gun. they are cheap to shoot and very accurate. factory and surplus ammo is very available.
about 2 years ago we bought my then 10 yr old grandson a savage model 10 in 308. its probably the most accurate factory rifle ive ever seen.
varmit wgt fluted barrel with a factory brake, detachable magazine, big bolt handle and a good adjustable trigger.
dime size groups with handloads. we installed a 4x12 nikon buckmaster scope
which has target knobs and side focus. rocks at 500 to 700 are a piece of cake for that young kid and it dosent beat him up shooting it. you could later switch
barrels and boltface yourself to any other cartridge you desire including the large magnums. check out the savage shooters website.
