Bought an xs-7 in 7mm-08 for my 9yo son's use.
He's on the small size, but our lease has shots to 400yds from some stands so I wanted a bit more range/energy than a .243 [not that I'd let him take a shot that far yet].
Put a Sightron Big Sky scope on it and it groups well at 200yds, lightweight with minimal recoil.
In fact, I use it instead of my 700BDL in .30-06 whenever he isnt with me.
Cant beat this combo for the price point- the Sightron is real close to the Leupold VXIII on my rifle.
I can only tell a difference at absolutely last light...
