Maybe go smaller
A good freind of mine started hunting a few years ago he started out with a gorgeous golden eagle in 30-06 his brother gave him. This guys 6-2 and goes about 220lb truck driver. He shot as his first deer and missed next deer he saw he misssed. The next year he missed 3 deer. He didn't practice with the gun much i took him to the range and the gun was dead on. I did notice he did have a flinch. I suggest he try a 6mm rem i loaned him, I also told him to go out and shoot ground hogs with it everychance he got That year he got his first buck and one every year since. He wound up buying the 6mm from me and is deadly with it.
Beaware the man who shoots one gun
