    A .243 should work pretty well for a youngin. They are perfect for whitetails and small enough for a kid.

    Where I live in Western New York it is shotgun only, which sucks. I started with a Ithica 16 gauge.

    When I was 13 my dad let me hunt with his 1894 Marlin chambered in 44 Magnum. He said if I killed a deer with it I could keep it. To make a long story short, the gun is now mine. I got very lucky and a 155 inch 10 pointer stepped out of the woods at about 65 yards. I made a perfect heart shot and kept the gun. Few people know how accurate a 44 mag can be, but I was able to get 3 inch 5-shot groups at 100 yards with it and it has very little recoil. I say this a great deer gun out to 125 yards for any age hunter.

    GO for the .243, 7mm-08, .308, depending on him and you, you could even get a automatic 20 guage shot gun with a rifled barrel and a smooth bore.

    Take a look at a ruger m77 in 25-06 with a wood stock. It's a great flat shooting gun with a three postions safety that has plenty of knock down and very little kick. You didn't metion if he has shoot before or much, but I have found for new shooters/hunter the lighter the kick equal less pre-shoot flinching. Another great caliber would be the .243, but it is not a versitale and kicks a bit more.

    I don't care for the safty on the 700, what about the Winchester three position safty? This is the boys first rifle.

    Another good caliber to consider is the 7mm-08. I started deer hunting with a Remington Model 7 in 7mm-08 and could easily handle the recoil even at 11 years old. The 7mm bullet gives you a range from 100 to 175 grains, which covers varmints to deer and beyond.
