Red Dot on a single shot

Post by Longbow2240 » Tue Nov 21, 2023 12:45 pm

Anybody have a Red Dot (preferably the Vortex Crossfire) on a single shot? Considering putting one on my 243. Would like to see some pics of available.

Thanks in advance

Hope this gives you some idea. The reddot is on a .357 and is the Vortex Venom 3 moa. It's mounted on a Henry/EGW mount which I shortened. The 3 moa is good for out to 100 yards but I've never attempted to use one at the ranges a .243 is capable of. The Leupold is a 2.5X Ultralight and is mounted on a .44 Mag.

I'm waiting for my rail and I'll be mounting a new Vortex Defender red dot only 45-70.
I like the looks of the venom. This should be good.

Been a while since the original post but a red dot for a single shot is a great choice for one in a pistol caliber. But Im not sure Id choose to put one on a SS in 243. JMHO

Don't worry about getting older and still doing stupid stuff. You'll do the stupid stuff as always, only much slower. Hold my beer and watch this.......
