    It'll be an off the shelf base with a break and some glass of some sort. The usual budget hunting stuff. I have my tight arse reputation to uphold.

    Of course but what chambering could possibly outdo the mighty 243?

    Ballisticly never going to happen, 223 is a scaled down 308,243 is quite overbore in comparison.

    Something in 7mm and some sort of magnum case would be a good next step I think.

    She didn't like my suppressed 223. Said it was pushing her back so she started closing her eyes. That was when the 11-12mm groups at 100m opened up. We managed to get past that little hiccup.

    I found with my 3 boys that got onto my 6.5x55 at age 7ish all enjoyed it suppressed and would keep asking more bullets dad!
    I truly believe that in some case the noise and percussion of a break is worse for a kids shooting than the recoil of a can.
    in saying that it's a dan can with a bit of volume.
    my youngest shot a 50 Cal after nagging me at about age 10,
    the look on his face when he pulled the trigger was priceless!

    So your remmag then?
    I wouldnt encourage my kids to be too quick into a magnum. Plenty of things to master with a standard cal prior to that.
    How far out does she want to get? Any of the 6.5s will get you way out with enough available clicks

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    The 6.5x47 here with a T2 moves back just 20mm in free recoil - outstanding.

    Excellent comparison video @Kiwi Greg

    The T2 certainly tames the beast alright.

    My personal opinion is go straight to the 7mm RM Gadget. Should be able to find a Howa or Tikka out there that should appeal to your Scottish Wallet.
    With one of Greg's T2's - It'll be a pussycat - compared to her 243 (which I think covers the Gibo's point) Trigger lightened to 1.5-2lb, and polished (if needed)
    The Go to brew of 2217, -72gr, match primers and 162 eld-x is pretty fabulous.

    I have a Gen 4 hardy on my tikka 7RM but am saving pennies for one of Greg's because they're that good! Don't go suppressor - then want to shoot at a range as its frying pan hot after 3 shots.

    I also have a old Omark 308 sitting in the safe that has just had its stock re-done and is in good order for a project if thats the way you'd potentially like to go as an alternate TR type of thing.

    I've sorted a 7mm RM. Will be an extra 2" of barrel and a faster twist than mine. But the bolt will be on the wrong side, which she prefers.
