My wife is considering hunting with me. When she passes her hunters safety course she deserves a present. I decided on a new rifle. I have chosen the Savage Lady hunter it will wear a Leupold VXII. She's not of large stature and may be recoil sensitive with this light rifle. That said I'm considering the above calibers. I'm a long time handloader so ammo availability isn't an issue. We will hunt Blacktail deer, pig and black bear. How about an opinion and supporting argument.
