    H4350 under 95 grain NBT's at 3250 feeps will do any Texas deer you're likely to encounter well past a quarter mile. (Remember my last antegoat...bullet didn't even know it was there and blew through it like butter).

    Smaller stuff, same powder, 75 grain V-Maxes at 3750 feeps. Flat. To way out there. It's always made me look better than I am.

    My dad worked up a load for this rifle years ago. He probably loaded it down, as my brother was only 11 or 12 when he was using it. I figure if I use it, it will be for someone about the same age and size, so I'm not going to worry about max performance. Kids that age aren't going to be making 300 yards shots across windy canyons, or at least shouldn't be trying.

    I just want something a young, small shooter can handle and will still put down a Texas whitetail.

    You can tailor a load for anything. Even a 6 or 7 mm.

    Aren't you glad it has a muzzle brake?

    What he said.

    My personal opinion is that the noise and pressure waves are what makes it scary for some kids. If they are protected from that, the recoil is nothing to them, from a .243. A .223 has the noise issues, just the same as a .243 for the most part, so why not just go the .243/6mm route and let them shoot it until they are desensitized to all of that? It's really no worse than a .410 shotgun (or even a 20 gauge with light loads), so that is a good, cheaper way to get them desenstized.

    Yes, I'm very glad it had a muzzle brake. It was a bit sharper in the recoil department than I expected. I've always thought there was something magical about 7mm bullets in that chambering, and still do. But, my .270 launches 160 grain Partitions at 2850. I'm enough of a wimp that I'll stick with that. Heck, I'll even shoot it twice if I have to.

    H4350 for any bullet weight from 75 grains to 100. You can load up or down. Loaded down the 6mm Rem is a powder puff for recoil, but it can be loaded to screaming LR velocity if needed.

    I've done a lot of work with the 6mm Rem, and H4350 is where it's at for 75 grain plus bullet weights. Hi to low.

    Family gun, he's trying to keep in the family but actually see some use, as his brother doesn't hunt.

    Not asking which cartridge we think he needs to buy guys.

    ???

    I don't think anyone went there.

    You might want to reread the whole thread.
