They die very easily if shot in the vitals, and a hunter would be far better off shooting a .30-30 or .257 Roberts that they shot well and were confident and comfortable with as opposed to something larger. The 7mm-08 is perfectly capable of moose although some would argue that.
With the wide selection of bullets available to a hand loader and the light recoiling nature is why I was leaning towards a light weight carbine in either 7mm-08 or .308 Winchester.
She's decide she really likes the Savage American classic stainless, and the .270 Winchester, so that's probably what she'll get herself.
