Re: Trijicon tr-23 and tracking
This is my first post, but I had to chime in. I have one with the green triangle. I just bought one with the red triangle and will probably get the 2.5-10 later this year for big game.
They are great scopes, tracking is excellent, the glass is very good and they are built tough. I've heard guys say the triangles are not any good for precision work. This is not true, in fact, I prefer the post. You have too understand how to use it. Use the tip for poi. You can't get anymore precise than that. I can routinely shoot 1/4-1/2 moa groups out to 600 with mine. Have shot 1 1/4 inch groups at 400, 1/2 inch at 300 and 2 inch groups at 600. I missed a coyote this winter at 913 yards by inches. I misjudged the wind as there was a draw in between getting more of a breeze than I suspected, thus it was inches to the right. But.....the elevation was dead nuts and returned perfectly. Mine first was on an AR set up, now is on a bolt 6.5 creedmoor and the new one will be on a 6mm remington build that was just finished. Honestly, after having one for a few years it is hard for me to go back to any other kind of reticle. I was looking at getting a Meopta or a Zeiss this time around, but cannot give up the post and quality of my trijicon. I LOVE it. Also, if you ever do any low light hunting, or fast acquisition coyote work, the illumination works great. No batteries and set it at the intensity you want without overpowering your eyes. Sometimes during the day I will shut down the illumination totally and just go with a black triangle which I really like too, it is very finite and crisp on the point.
Hope this helps, I don't think you'll be disappointed in one of these scopes.
