I had an NEF 1n 223 and the trigger was not bad. It was a very rugged gun. Accuracy was fair but not MOA. I would like to have one in 357. My son still has an HR in 33-30/20 guage and I had to have the trigger worked over when I got it for him as it was really bad. Quality on Rossi has been hit or miss and I have seen several reports of rifle barrels wearing out under 1k rnds. Now that Taurus has taken them over, things might improve but I have not had that great an experience with Taurus either. The current reports on Taurus have been favorable but once you have been burned it is hard to go back. I was burned on 2 out of 4.

Not at all. That is the beauty part of reloading. .308 is a great Coyote round. It costs a little more in the powder dept, but it can really simplify things when there is a breeze blowing. If I want the hides a Barnes 53gr or Sierra 63gr in .223 is my choice, they make little holes in and out. The .308 is the same w/ a heavier wind bucking bullet. I have a 1000 165gr Prvi SPBT bullets I bought this past year. I use them on Whitetail and they work very well on Coyotes also. I'll even take out my M41b 6.5x55, M1600 6.5x55, Savage110 7MM Rem Mag just to get trigger time w/ them. In the dense woods, a .44-40 lever gun is fun.

Savage Axis is $299 if you buy from the right dealer, 22/250 is a great yote caliber but ammo is a little more costly for the significantly better ballistics. The gun has no sights so a scope is necessary.

Default .243 Rossi

took a couple caribou with a .243barreld Rossi, was good built, did the job and made it back home with all the parts where there supposed to be, Rossi sells them as multi barreled kits too, gun shop had two pairs and one trio set, Paird one was a .22lr and 20 gage, the other was a .243 and .12gagae, the last was a trio barrel kit with .17HMR, 20gage and .308.
Fore what you pay and get it anit all that bad, just cant get past that sway back look they have.
If your doing allot of shooting buy quality, if 3-7 times a year get a Rossi
Anybody think the Rossi Circuit Judge is just bad ass looking?

Default The only bad thing I...

Might say about the 1981 Rossi shotgun Pop has is that it has a very skinny
butt! And if not held properly, will give you a heck of a bruise when you use
3" mag shells!

Default Btw, a note of warning...

About an old Rossi shotgun! They have a very "skinny/small butt" that will
inflict an impressive bruise if you don't shoulder it properly! (I like women
with skinny butts)...But, not my firearms!
