Yes, the .243 will be entirely up to the job if the shooter can place the shot correctly (and this applies even to 375's). For a boy that age, the .243 is perfect! I took my first deer with a 20 gauge slug. Then I graduated to a real rifle - a .243 and had success with it too for several years. Now I've moved up to a 30-06 for larger deer and elk. But if I'm going for meat on the table and thus a doe of reasonable size to easily drag out (rather than a trophy buck), then I go back to the .243 and 100 grain Federal BTSP.
