I have been letting my 10 yo shoot my .223 this summer to get used to a bolt action for caribou hunting this fall. Lately I have had him shooting my .270 Win, but the LOP is awkward for him. I have been looking at youth models at SW and found a youth Weatherby Vanguard in both .308 and .270 for a reasonable price. They also have a youth Remington 7mm.08 which seemed dandy to me... until I looked at the price of the ammo! I'm leaning toward the .308 right now because the ammo is so reasonable and common, but love the .270 Win for its ballistics. Don't want to start a pissing contest, but I could use a LITTLE input on your experiences with kids shooting these calibers.
