My girlfriend waas shooting a regular size .270 before we got together. I went o get her a new rifle and found out for her size she needed a youth model to be comfortable. I bought her a youth 700 SPS in 7mm-08. It was so good i got me one in full size 700. She loves it. Little to no recoil compared to the .270 and plenty of knock down power. I love mine too, and I have been a .270 shooter for over 20 years. Using a 140 grain fusion bullet, it can't be beat.
