What about a 7mm-08. A good flat shooter, but hardly any recoil. I don't have a lot of experience with one, I shot one 2 times, and it seemed pretty mellow. I am in the same boat trying to find something for the misses. Or a 308? I found a single shot Rossi that comes with a 20 gauge barrel and a 308 barrel for $249 at Gander Mountain. I am thinking about getting one for the misses, but I know very little about the 308 either.
