My answer to this question would be the 300 PRC I used this year. Terminus Kratos action with a 26-inch Christensen Arms 1:10 barrel blank chambered in 300 PRC with a TI Pro 3 ST muzzle brake. Mounted in a Manners EH1 with Hawkins bottom metal, Wyatt's internal mag box, TriggerTech Diamond trigger topped with a Nightforce ATACR 5-25x56 mounted in Hawkins Ultra Light Tactical rings. The load was 2935 fps with a 215 gr Berger Hybrid in Lapua brass.

If you want light (which lighter rifles are harder to shoot well for the inexperienced shooter):
Kelbly Nanook LA mag bolt face
26" 1:9" Proof Sendero Carbon Fiber
3 port Ti Terminator brake
Manners EH1
Hawkins M5 Oberndorf BDL bottom metal w. Wyatt's extended box
Triggertech Diamond
Hawkins UL rings w. Level
Nightforce NX8 4-32×50

If an extra pound or two won't hurt (and will be nicer to shoot):
Kelbly Prometheus or Defiance Deviant GA Hunter LA mag bolt face
26" 1:9" Bartlein #13 Carbon Fiber
T2 Terminator brake
Manners LRH w. M5 mini chassis
Hawkins M5 Oberndorf BDL w. Wyatt's extended box or M5 DBM w. Accurate mags
TriggerTech Diamond
ARC M10 rings
Tangent Theta TT525P 5-25×50 or ZCO 527 5-27×56

Lapua brass
Fed GM215M primers
VV N570
Berger 215 Hyb, 230 OTM, or 230 Hyb

You could always go to a suppressor to make it more enjoyable to shoot/hunt with on everything but recoil.
SilencerCo 300 Omega or Thunderbeast Ultra 9 Gen 2
