Re: looking for a scope for Rossi Trifecta .243 barrel
in the end, it was his money buying the scope and he went cheap on me. some lessons need to be learned hard despite my efforts to get him into a better piece of hardware. We ended up with a Tru-Glo 5MOA dual color dot scope with no magnification.
So far, it has held up to the minor recoil well but the gun itself is wickedly inaccurate. We ran some 95gr fusion bullets through it (this was the first time out) and it is challenged to pull an 8" group at 50 yards. THinking it may be the scope, i pulled it off and rocked the iron sights for a few shots - same story, i put 5 into an 8" circle at 50. after a lot of reading, i think this is just too heavy a bullet for the rifle and i found some 80gr federal SP's. will be heading back out to try them in the next day or 2.
