Rifle for my wife?

I am trying to get my wife into whitetail hunting and am looking on buying a new rifle. I am leaning heavely on a weatherby vanguard compact in 7mm-08. Does anyone own one of these or have any comments on the 7mm-08?

I'd say if you're gonna spend the money, go ahead and get the 7mm-08. It's a heck of a lot more gun than the .243 but the recoil will be similar to the smaller calibers. The .270 might still kick too much for a lady or a youngster depending on their size and pain threshold.
