Default 7.62x39 accuracy

I can put a mag of wolf out of my saiga on a pie plate at 200 yards. Is that acceptable accuracy?
I dont have any freinds with 7.62 akm rifles to compare.

no that sucks, talk to us when you can hit a penny on top of stick

joking aside, how close were the hits on the pie plate? Seems good to me

A few years back I took a Russian SKS to the range and the bolt guys were shooting. After a few minutes the range went cold and I set a target. When the range went hot again I fired the 10 rounds out of the SKS as fast as I could and waited for the range to go cold. I retrieved my target and was leaving when one of the bolt guys asked me " what was the purpose of that, you could not have hit anything." I took the target opened it and placed it over my chest and asked him " where did I miss?" There were 10 holes on the 12x12 target and all were between the tits and stomach. He walked off. That was at 75 yards but the point was made.

A change in cheek placement would do this. What model Saiga are you using to get that tight a group at that distance? Best I can get from my Vepr or CG1 is 2-3 moa.

Its a century converted saiga. I think it has a russian military barrel. I cut off the shroud at the end of the muzzle and found out it was threaded, i have hered that means its military.

4mula: were the 300 yard hits done with iron sights? That would be good even with a red dot.

I'm happy to do that with an Enfield #4s aperture sights, and sometimes have luck with an SKS' iron sights.

I invite you to come to Missouri for AKFiles National shoot. We make hits on gongs out to 600 yards with iron sights. (looks him in the eye.... spits on the ground) Got video of it.

I doubt i could do that, i know i couldent do that🙁
My limit would probably be 300 have not tried but i know i could. Within what the ak was made for im happy with that. My dad can reach out to 1500 yards with his M1A1 toped with an el cheapo tasco. He won a long range rifle contest with that setup. People were mocking him when he showed up with that scope but they ate their words

Yeah, I think it is acceptable. I do the same with a WASR with a 3x red dot
I think if I can keep all shots inside a regular 9" paper plate at 200 yards, I'll be able to put down a person at that distance with no problem.
Depending on ammo, there could be those fliers.
Furthest I've been able to ring steel was at 300 meters with the same set up.
I need to find a range with further distances for a better challenge. I really would like to see where I am capable to reach out to consistently with my rifle.
I want to shoot rainbows!

I make hits 1200 meters out on skittles using the irons on my IO.

Beat that, culeros.

The last time I was at the range I was ringing the gong at 350 yards on iron sights with a yugo RPK. That's good enough accuracy for me...

Throw some glass on it and see how it groups.

If your hitting a plate at 200 with no magnification it says your a good shot .
Dosent tell much about the rifle other than its sub 5" MOA or so.

A lot of guys can't hit a paper plate with a $5000 target rifle with no magnification.
