    Robie,
    Another vote here for the 7mm-08. However, look at it in the Weatherby Vanguard II. The higher comb on the Weatherby stock fits most gals really well. AND its more affordable than the Savage...

    I start thinking 260 or 6.5 Creedmoor if I want a lighter weight rifle for a lady. The newer Ruger American Predator in 6.5 Creedmoor would likely get my vote if my wife hunted on foot as much as I...
