Look at the game regs where you intend to hunt. Many states do not allow the .223/5.56 to be used for hunting deer and other game

If the .223 is not allowed this will help with your selection.

The .243 is a great round. If you reload you might also look at the .270

Load it down and use a lighter bullet. As your child gets older, you can load heavier bullets and closer to max loads.
