It's more versatile for any purpose.

Fyi, my daughter shoots AR's and AK's with no problem. A 30-30 lever I have was a bit too much for her and that's with a recoil pad.
Recoil is pretty much what I consider non-existent, even with a light bolt action around 7 lbs. My 17 year old daughter shoots 243 no problem.
