This is the youth package I bought my son once he became a qualified apprentice hunter. Available in .243 or .30-06 caliber, it is a great deal that comes with quality optics mounted and bore sighted.

A couple of trips to the range, some fine tuning, and he was raring to go for last year's whitetail season, and the price can't be beat.

2. Remington® Model 783™ Bolt-Action Rifle and 3-9x40 Scope Combo
