If you handload, then go with a .243. You can make reduced recoil loads for now, and as the kid grows, the capabilities of the rig can grow with him/her.

That was my plan with my Ruger Frontier in 7-08: Downloaded to 2400 f/sec for a 139gr bullet, you have 30/30 energy levels, and later on in life, heavier, more efficient bullets can make it a 300+ yard deer gun.
