These days my 12 year old son shoots my Proof TAC II in 6 Creedmoor to a 1000 yards...BUT...
I started my kids on a Remington 700 BDL in 7mm-08, then ordered an HS Precision Pro-Series ultralight stock with a 12" length of pull (LOP) for the shorter arms of my two young kids. Then had my local smith thread the barrel, I installed a 3-port muzzle brake, and a Vortex Razor HD LH 3-15x42 in Vortex rings. That baby is LIGHT with hardly any felt recoil. I reload so I started them on reduced loads with 120 grain bullets and have worked them up to 168 gr Berger VLDs.
I stick with Remington 700s, easily accurized and updated as necessary.
This muzzle break was fitted at Proof Research, so whichever one they have.
Thanks I'll call on Mon looks like he maked a beast of a breakThis muzzle break was fitted at Proof Research, so whichever one they have.
Depending on your muzzle thread size, I'd recommend either an APA Little Bastard Brake, or the Hellfire Brake from Area 419. Both can be self-timed (no gunsmith required) and are the best I've used for reducing recoil. If you want to keep weight down, you can reach out to Muzzle Brakes and More and see if he has any Titanium self-timing 3-port muzzle brakes made up for sale.
My kids love theirs also only difference went with the wood stock added weight helps.
