7mm-08 definitely. Way better ballistics and you can get reduced recoil ammo if you need it. Bought a youth model for my grandson and we both really like it.

25-06 is a great low recoil round with great ballistics.

id get her a .308. They offer managed recoil loads for it also. When she gets used to it you can use regular ammo. My 15 year old daughter shoots my .308 and .270. My oldest killed her first deer at age 12 with a .308


Two roads diverged in the woods and I took the one with deep ruts,hills and mud.It may be bumpy but WHAT A RIDE!

Read the youth gun advice in the drop down. I put a recoil, enerty, velocity chart in there.

If would go with the 7-08 over the 30/30.

unless you are shooting over 100yrds it really doesn't matter.

I would get it early and paint the stock pink camo. How it looks is 100x more important to a woman that ballistics, energy, etc.

google
Remington ballistics and there is a pretty good online program to compare different rounds

Heck you can buy a 7-08 with scope cheaper than a 30-30. Marlin XS7 or Savage Axis.

I would go with the 7 08 but there are lots of options out there do some research and put it to the style of hunting you will be doing I personally like a 30 caliber and the 308 is a very good choice not a lot of kick and plenty of punch even on longer shots.


I would rather be turkey hunting

Not even close. 708

I'd go with the 7-08 over most any round.

I have both.

30/30 for "in the woods" hunting. I like the larger diameter bullet.

7-08 for eveything else.

So to answer the question. 7mm-08 for an all around for her.
