Default Caliber choice for my Nephew's rifle

I am still planning on picking up a rifle for my Nephew if his Father-in-law doesn't buy him one for Christmas. My instinct is to buy him a bolt action in 30-06. He is in his late 20s 6 ft and athlectic build. He doesn't have hardly any trigger time, I will be making sure to address that. I am still considering 7mm-08 instead of 30-06. Also I know that his Father-in-law carries a Browning BLR in 308. A 308 would give him compatibility with his Father-in-law but not really any recoil reduction over a 30-06. The reloads I make up for all our 30-06s are loaded toward the bottom of the range of powder and probibly would match factory 308s at the same bullet weight. I may just head to the gunshow after the first of the year and pick up whatever screams at me for him. No matter if I buy it or his Father-in-law does I know we have a new hunter in the woods.
