If someone were to chamber a youth model rifle in .250 and .300 Savage would they sell? Both calibers have a lot to offer young hunters . They both have excellent terminal ballistics , with mild recoil and will fit anyone's short actions . I know that ammo is not found at Wally World (but then nothing good is) But I have to think , if someone was making rifles the ammo would soon follow . I would rather put a .250 Sav. into a kids hands than what is now available . No I have nothing against the .243 or .308 . It's just that the .250 can handle a heavier bullet , and the .300 has less recoil than the .308 .
