I would get them a ruger american in 6.5 creedmoor and add a Boyds at One stock.
It is super important to have a rifle that fits them! We have all heard the term "they will grow into the rifle" which is unnecessary. Our chassis with a TR-2 buttstock has an adjustable LOP from 12-15 inches with the standard buffer tube. This is the best way to go for the little ones because it allows the rifle to grow with them! This will make them more comfortable behind the rifle and break better shots than if they have to stretch to get a proper sight picture. You can pick up a Tikka for $600-700 if you search around. The chassis will be $670 if you go with the mentioned configuration. You now have a lightweight rifle that will fit anyone in the family!
My bad, looks like your kids already got a badass set up. Hope they have fun!I loved my Howa 1500 in 308. Very mild kick, tons of ammo available, and shot 1/2”-3/4” groups at 100 all day long with Barnes TTSX. Also nice cause the actions are the same as the weatherbys so you get the quality at a much lesser price. I do believe a different bolt though. Either way it was an awesome dependable rifle that didn’t break bank.
Don’t think you could ever put down the Ruger American either tremendous little rifle for the price.
