I want a new rifle

I am in the market for kind of a do all gun (I know that doesn't really exist, just work with me here)

I want something with a little smaller length of pull so it's comfortable for my fiancé. Something in either a smaller caliber like a .270 or a larger caliber with good reduced recoil load options.

I am interested in something like rugers new ranch gun, a lever gun, or even just a compact rifle. What's the difference between them? Pros, cons?

We arnt marksman so def no shots beyond 300 yards. Has to be able to mount an optic. Most of my hunting is down here in Florida and just joined a lease on a small farm in south ga. Weight and ergonomics are a concern because I like to do a lot of walking too. Would like to stay under $500 brand new.
