    Replacement barrels?

    I picked up a Trifecta in .22/20/.243 since nobody had the .44. I was wondering if there is a source for replacement barrels so I could keep the .243 for groundhogs and use let my daughter use the .44 for deer.

    Not to over step here, but a well placed .243 should have no trouble downing a whitetail. My son has been using one for years with great success.

    .243 lays down more energy MUCH farther out than a .44, MUCH better caliber choice for deer hunting, and not very bad on the shoulder, no worse than a .44 barrel would be.

    I've always told people who were considering a .22-250 for their kid due to recoil, if they ain't old enough to handle a .243, they ain't old enough to hunt. .22-250 will kill deer, of course, but .243 is a much better choice for deer sized game.

    I killed my first at age 11 with a .257 Roberts which is a little more gun than a .243 as my grandpa handloaded it, but not that much, and in factory ammo it's no better. I was using my grandpa's killer handloads and still handled the recoil. Still own that rifle and it has killed a couple dozen over the years for me. They all died just as dead as if hit with my 7 mag and with more edible meat left on the carcass.

    The barrels for the Rossis are NOT interchangeable OR available by themselves. Spend some cash & buy an Encore if u want to buy barrels. The Rossi guns cost about as much for a kit WITH a set of barrels than the Encore barrel by itself... Wont even mention the cost of the action on an Encore..
