7.62x54R proved a bit much for the eight year old girl

A little while ago, Alexis tried SVD sniper rifle, found the recoil excessive. The slanted stock shape contributed to the problem. 6.5 Grendel, a mild cartridge with high ballistic coefficient bullets, may be the reasonable solution for her long-range use. This is one of Fighting Sheepdog custom rifles, not hers to keep. For the sake of her family’s ammo budget, she’s staying with 22LR and 5.56mm for now.
