My son Will be taking hunter's Ed next week. We promised him that after he passed we would buy him a .243 rifle/scope combo rifle. I have a lot of Firearms but none are .243 or Savage. I hear a lot of great thing about Savage rifles. I'm thinking about buying the Savage Axis XP .243 Youth Camo Rifle for my son. He is 11 years old and weighs 98 pounds. Anybody have first hand knowledge with this rifle?. My son wants to bow hunt but he cannot pull the 40 pound minimum.
