    I have seen them advertised, but I haven't had the chance to look at them in person.

    How tall is she?

    I ask because, if I remember correctly, Remmington makes a youth model in that caliber. Cost wasn't that large....

    Glad to see you are doing better.

    She is 5' 4" and shots a full sized gun now that has a 13.25"LOP I was thinking of a youth model but cost is where I need t obe careful.

    What about a FP-10 Savage?

    Just a thought...

    good weapon at a good price...

    Cost could be an issue.


    $559 is a little high compared to some. Maybe you could find one used? My wife is a little smaller than that, and a youth model 1187 fits her fine. Dimensions on the 700 sps would probably be about right. Would make for a handy little rifle too......

    I haven’t tried one Doc,
    But I do have a Daughter who is hunting this year for the first for big game, and I bought her a Rem 700 ADL 270 win used with a scope for 200.00 I was going to re barrel it if it didn’t shoot well.

    But now Im not touching it, we took it to the range and with factory Rem Corlocks I can get one ragged hole at 100yd with it and she shoots 3./4 and 1” groups on a regular basis.

    I didn’t worry about the finish on I was going to use Brownels gunkote in the color she picked.

    But now that several guy’s the range have witnessed her shooting this rifle with factory ammo and beating their 1000.00 + rifles groups she has learned the value of a great shooting rifle and has chose not to change it in anyway for fear of it not shooting the same!

    Just a thought for you.
