So 1st year drawing and my wife picked up a Kodiak brown bear tag. North Karluk River spring 2016. Im sure I will have numerous questions about the unit at some point, going to try and do some deer hunting this fall down there to get a lay of the land.
But I am going to start out with something a bit more straightforward. My wife is 5"0 and weighs 98 lbs. She currently shoots a Ruger 308 in a youth model. Which is a great rifle for her and she enjoys shooting it. But we are quite afraid the .308 is a wee bit light.... so she is in the market for a new rifle.
She cannot shoot a full size rifle, she is just flat out too small. But I cannot find any larger calibers with a short enough stock to accommodate her. We want something with more punch than the .308 and are thinking a .30 cal in a magnum round. Either a win mag or a wsm. Do any companies make a non custom rifle in a short stock (or youth size) that may fit her. We know we are going to have to add shoulder pads and a muzzle break to make it easier on her to shoot. But I would like to avoid a fully custom gun if possible.
Thank you in advance!
