I wouldnt recommend the .308 only because it is gonna be his first rifle. Recoil with a .308 might be a little more than you wanna start out with. Flinching habits are easy to pick up for someone just learning how to shoot and very hard to overcome. The .243 that was already mentioned is just a necked down .308 anyway, and will kill a deer just as dead just as fast, with about half the kick. But other than the extra recoil, the .308 would be fine
