Default Looking for best rifle for petite female hunter

I am using my Grandfather's 1967 .270 Winchester rifle for hunting right now but it is sort of too big for me. I am only 5'2/petite and with my shorter arms that sometimes takes me a minute to get set up for a shot and can only hold it for a little bit because it starts too get too heavy for me. My fella complains when we go in the woods that I carry my gun over my shoulder and not in the "ready" position. We went and looked at rifles for me over the weekend but the new ones still seem too big for me. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or if I should look at youth sized rifles.
