Anyone have any suggestions for a youth model rifle? I would like it to be 30-06 but I havent seen any in that caliber. My reasoning behind it is I read an article about loading down full power cartridges and I have all the reloading supplies for 30-06. If that is not possible what do you suggest for Coues whitetail and Javelina and maybe some desert mulies in southern AZ? A friend of mine used a youth model .308 and his son hated it, it actually kicked harder than a fullsize 30-06 since the gun is so short and light. SO what are some good calibers to look for?
