Females first deer rifle
What's up Firing Line,
This is my first post, even though I read these things all the time. So here is my question, what caliber and make would you guys suggest for a girls first deer rifle? I am lucky enough to shoot a .257 Roberts in the Ruger platform, and have never had a deer make it more than a few steps before keeling over. I didn't realize that caliber isn't all that easy to find though. I am leaning towards the .270 and am pretty Ruger biased but am open to any and all suggestions. Figure the best place to ask would be the people that shoot all the time and not the salesman behind the counter trying to make a dollar.
Oh yeah, shes 23 and a southpaw.
