I am looking for a new deer rifle for my wife. I am thinking a ruger compact in .260. I need a light rifle and also need to keep recoil low because of my wifes arthritis and bad back. Does anybody have any experience with this combo. I want a bit larger than 243 just in case. thats not saying my wife is a bad shot, she is very patient and will let the biggest deer walk if she does'nt get the shot she wants. I just want a gun that she can carry and stand to shoot. Thanks for any help.
