Is that at 100 yds?

I wanna add that some will laugh at 2-3" grouping at 100 yds. I say read the topic of the thread. Accuracy is a relative term and this is relating to AK's. Have you tried Ammocan? Buy in bulk, shoot what you will be shooting all the time. Even at 6-7" at 100 yards is fine in a SHTF as long as you have plenty of ammo.

I was talking about bullet balistics, i'm not sure at what distance they test at. I personally have shot 2-3" grouping at 100yds with my sks. I also have done alot of work to my weapon, and much shooting for many yrs. I'm comfortable with my weapon, and like anything else you want to be good at, it takes alot of practise, also knowing your weapon and being able to make adjustments under various conditions. I do agree with you 6-7" grouping at 100yds is good.

7.62x39 Yugo FMJ 124GR Brass case military ammo boxed. 1260rd Case

Also at Aim Surplus, $182.00 + S&H for a 1120 rd case.

Yugoslavian 7.62x39 on SKS Chargers 40rd box

This is the most accurate 7.62x39 surplus ammo I have ever used.
You said it right there. This stuff surprised the heck outta me the first time I used it, now it's been switched from plinking ammo to sight-in and save ammo. Partially because it is mildly corrosive, but mostly because I want it in the case if I ever need it.

Default silver bear

I got to the range yesterday and was able to sight in at 25yds. It took some adjusting but I got it zeroed in. Once I was done with my groups, I loaded the remaining 25rds and let it rip. I was happy with the silver bear, but man is it dirty.

Nice Saiga. What mods did you do to it? Was the mag well difficult to Dremel, or was it ready to accept a double stack when you got it? I'm eyeing one at the local store here. It's older w/ wood hand-guards/stock, but I can see and feel the potential radiating from it. . .

Your assessment of that Silver Bear is exactly how I rate it. I only buy it if its on sale for the same price as the "Military Wolf" (lowest on the totem pole loading).

All saigas are double stack magazine ready. The only difference is, on the saiga there is a feed lip built into the mag and on the norm ak its built into the rifles trunion. You can put in an aftermarket feed ramp into your saiga rifle. Mines not mag converted. Thats an SGM clear mag with a tapco t6 stock, about the only thing you can do with a stock saiga without converting it.
