I got my wife a Savage youth mdl. 243. She killed with it last Saturday evening.... After we got down, she said "I didn't even feel it kick at all"... Well a 243 has almost no recoil at all anyway,,, but shooting at a deer I think that she could have shot my 270wthby. mag and not felt anything...... If you woman is small and fragle the go with the 243.,, If she is a normal cajun woman (kind of stoute) I would go with the 7mm-08, or even look into a 308... With the 308 there are so many bullet grain choices.. Good Luck..
