Out shopping this evening, lookin for a new hunting rifle for my 11yo son. He is a south paw (left handed), so the selection is slim. Was looking for a 243, but found a 7mm-08. I don't know much about the round, other than what I just read on the net and the "gun expert" at gander told me lol. Appears to be a nice round, and they had a large selection of brands and grains, but....again, don't know much about the round. Anyone have any info? Thx.
