Rifle for grandson

Looking for info on a .243 for my grandsons 1st deer season, thinking synthetic since it will probably get some scratches on it, he has a Remington BDL 30-06 waiting till he gets alittle older, it’s an older one when they were good, anyway, I know Savage, Mossberg, Ruger and Winchester all make one. What are your thoughts? Thanks!!

for a good reasonable rifle look at TCs very accurate and can get a youth model.

Another vote for the TC. I have a Venture in .22-250 and when it was time to get my son a rifle for deer. I again picked the Venture. I just think there's a lot of gun and features there for the money. We settled on the 7mm-08 for him. My 22-250 shoots really well, but he gets teeny tiny groups out of it with some handloads that I made for the 7mm-08. Or maybe he's just getting better than me ;-)

I agree with Down2hunt. I have Remington, Winchester and Ruger. For the money you can't beat Savage, I have a 270 and a 25-06 that I have a hard time deciding which one to take. Both shoot great....

IMO if you buy a savage get one with the accuetriger. Last year I tried to sight in my buddy’ s savage and the trigger was like 9 lbs on his axis/edge rifle.

Savage. Best price for an accurate shooter.

Savage 11 or 111 in 243 wood stock or synthetic would be fine, I got my Grandson a Savage 111 in 25-06 wood stock it looks good and shoots great. What ever you decide on I`m sure your Grandson will love it...….
