I guess an SKS isn't a full size battle rifle but there really isn't a section for an SKS here. Guess I coulda put it in the AK forum. Move me where i need to go Mods (if need be)
I have a Norinco I've never shot before. It had the mystery "west cost" rail already on it so I had Converta mount put on and I found this cool little 2.5x Chinese scope for it. Has Bullet Drop Reticule to 400m. Had Kivaari (Tom Prince) set me up a two stage trigger at 5.5lbs. Will probably cut off the front third of the Converta mount. Probably should have fired it before I went this far down the road - huh.
I've never sighted in let alone fired and SKS before. I believe I've read if you sight in a .223 AR at 25yds it should be good a100. If you sight in a .308 (M1a, AR10, etc) at 50yds it should be at 200.
Any rules of thumb like this when getting started from the 1st shot? I hope it's a decent shooter. I know I shouldn't expect much after a couple hundred yards. I don't have too much tied up into it but a lot of time. I really don't enjoy shooting my Yugo underfolder AK and I have HEAPS of x39 ammo.
Also. Is it true these barrels widen their groups after 5-10 rds?
Crappy pics but I had to use the smart phone. Lost my "real" camera.
