    Remington 700 375 RUM

    . Its a fairly light rifle, so recoil is still stout. If it doesn't sell I would put a different break on it and switch to a heavier bullet, probably the 331 sledge hammer. But were talking about a gun with over 5,500 FT LB's of energy at the barrel.

    Big Game/Large Caliber lever action

    Hard to beat the 45-70 and ammo is still easy to find. Especially since a lot of stated that didn't allow rifles for deer are starting to let some of the straight cartridges be legal.

    Good youth rifles. What do y'all recommend?

    I would go with a remington 700 youth, then upgrade the stock when he gets bigger. 243 or 7mm-08

    They only work as good as you can keep it pointed at the game. That means during draw and release. Pretty easy to run though

    17 yr old daughter recoil shy, need advice please.

    Not sure on that states muzzy laws, but PRbullets makes some light bullets for the 50 cal, all the way down to 175 grain. I have shot their dead center bullets in my .45 cal smokeless with great results.

    Elevation and shooting question

    400 yards is easy for bullet drop, below is a 308 reference from 1000, 5000, 9000 feet of elevation, only a couple inches difference. But look at wind drift effect at different elevations.

    Elevation and shooting question

    If you are going to shoot past 500 yards and hunt at extremely different elevations then yardage turrets are a waste of time. Stick with MOA or Mrad and print out a drop chart for the elevation you plan to hunt. Below is my 300 WM shooting a 215 berger at 2860, 10 mph 90* wind angle. Top row...

    Ammo and Optics for 7mm-08

    I would try out Nosler 140 accubonds, Hornady 139 interlock, Federal 140 trophy copper As for scopes, I am a fan of vortex, 3-9 or 4-12 power should do what you need.
