So.. I have one of these for my kiddos in .223 with a simple crosshair reticle. It's stock except for an upgraded trigger spring. Have it sighted in about 1-2" high at 100 yards. We usually practice at 100 but I feel confidant my kids can shoot it out to 200. Good little cheap rifle!


Two things: My older one is getting older. And, we won a hunt (may or may not be able to go) that requires at least a .243 caliber

I don't think it's worth stepping up from .223 to .243. It looks like the next step up after that (in these rifles) is the Creedmoor, which would be good cause I have a stock pile of good ammo. I think she can handle the recoil at this point np..

My question is are these rifles capable of shooting 300-400 yards accurately with really good ammo and a decent bdc scope?
