7 BR or 7-08 will easily do that

Probably won't need a brake; depends on each individual's recoil sensitivity. My DIL has a .243 with a brake.

I have had ladies show up to hunt 'Lopers with .308's; no brake.

Good luck on your progress; keep in touch!

Can't help you with the 7mm-08 (even though I'd love one), but I will suggest a 15" barrel, preferably with a heavy taper or full bull contour. If you're interested in something a bit more handy and are willing to sacrifice a little velocity, I've found 12" barrels to be a pretty good balance.

Here is the one I set up for my neighbor. He wanted something with a little distance but easy to reload. Had the break put on and it is like shooting a .243 bull barrel.
I load 140 Nosler Ballistic tips and Varget for his rig. With the break and the weight of the 3x12 Burris it is a piece of cake.
