First Range Trip with the TruGlo TRU-TEC Red Dot Sight

First Range Trip TruGlo TRU-TEC Red Dot Sight
Ruger 10/22 with FAB Defense UAS PRO R10/22 Stock and TruGlo TRU-TEC Red Dot Sight

I recently mounted the TruGlo TRU-TEC Red Dot Sight on our Ruger 10/22 with FAB Defense UAS PRO R10/22 Stock. During my last trip to the range, I had a few minutes available to dedicate to zeroing the TruGlo.

I chose to zero the TruGlo TRU-TEC at 50 yards, since this rifle is mainly used for short-range plinking.  I only had one Birchwood Casey target set up at the 50 yard mark, so I started off shooting at the dirt berm to get me in the ballpark. Once I was confident I was fairly zeroed, I moved to the paper target.

As you can see from the target shown, I started off a little high and left. So, it took a few clicks of the elevation and windage screws to get the red dot zeroed. The protective caps on the adjustment screws have built in tools for turning the screws, which is a very nice feature!

The 2MOA reticle on the TRU-TEC should allow for some really nice accuracy. However, I found that the orange bullseye on the target was drowning out the red dot a little, which probably impacted my accuracy. Of course, turning up the brightness of the red dot helped. Next time I’ll test this red dot with some of the Birchwood Casey targets that feature a yellow bullseye.

Speaking of next time… Although this range trip confirmed that the TruGlo TRU-TEC is a great option for this particular rifle, I’m going to be switching things up again following this post. I just received a new ATI Stock for the 10/22, so I’ll be remounting the TRU-TEC on the new stock. Stay tuned for a look at this new 10/22 setup and some more range testing.
