I own a Marlin 30-30 and love the gun. I went shopping for a second gun that I could use and my 12 year old daughter could use and grow into. I bought a 270. The gun, using factory standard loads kicks more than the 30-30 does. One of the reasons I chose the gun, or i should say caliber, was because Remington offers managed recoil rounds.I purchased theserounds and find that they are very mild kicking. Less, in fact than the 30-30 (by maybe 25%). My daughter finds this roundfairly comfortable also.Remington advertises that this round should be effective out to 200 yards. The bonus here is that if you want to go after larger game you can use "regular" loads and have agun with enough power totake just about any game and not have to buy a new gun.

Never lost a deer or hog using my .243. Only had 2 deer run a 100 yds with it. both were heart shots, damn deer just didnt know he was dead. All deer drop or run about 40 yds max. Ive taken several with neck shots and a few head shots. Instant death.
My son took his first deer with my .243, 3 years ago he was 15. he has taken 6 so far and not one has gone farther than 40 yds. he took one with a head on spine shot that dropped in his tracks and the bullet went completely through, out the arse.
But I always wait for broadside shots if I'm going for the body, it doesnt matter what gun I'm using, always broadside. People that lose deer is because of poor placement,I guarantee it. quartering too or away are just iffy in my opinion, when that happens I take a neck or head shot. I have extreme confidence in my gun, it will hit where I aim, everytime. .243 is so mild but yet packs a punch.
I didnt do to good last year , well buck wise, but heres the ones from the year before.

I think you would be satisfied with the .308 in the 7600.

The 300 win mag will be your choice for quiet recoil free years of service. Just an all around great gun.

I definatly would not go with a rem 7600, stick with a bolt gun.Youll have plently of time for a follow up. As for the caliber i think you should go with a 7-08 or 243.

Lots of good calib out there, I like the 7mm-08 in a light wt rifle. Rem 700 Mt Rifle is what I use, but there there are many other great ones. I also use 30-06, 270, 243, 30-30 and like all of them.
My first post.
Looks like a good forum you guys have .

The .243 would serve you well for what you're asking of it.

How does the performance of the managed recoil rounds stack up? Can you compare it the standard 30-30 round?

Why not a pump? I have seen good reviews on the accuracy of the 7600. Both hands can stay where they are on the stocks and you may not even have to take your eye away from the scope. Plus it has a detechable box mag.

7mm-08 would be my choice considering your requirements.
