For 25 yd, I agree totally. With a new barrel, under 1-2K & at 100 yd, a 5 group drops in a NRA pistol target bullseye circle. I can do it but I zero cold & clean … Yes way, we need to be shoot’n some open bullseyes. Superb video AKOU, thank you.
I want to add, I use “1” at 100 yd, after zeroing at 25 yd on “2.” I feedback the same basic spread but much tighter, due to rifle and barrel, under 1K rds. NRA target D-1/D-2 used. I also use the U.S Army’s 25 meter Alterante C-Course of Fire, two rounds each silhouette. However, when just zeroing at 25 yd & hitt’n dots, I use Walmart 1 inch label stick on circles and all have to hit each dot for a 5 rd group.
At 100 yd, I have days, where I hit all D-1/D-2 bullseyes, others, where one drops out and yet others, where half bullseye. At 100 yd, I fire, every 5-7 sec, maybe 10 max, if I’m bullseyeing for 100%. Yes, I read wind & holds; I use AKOU’s wind chart – max 28 mph. On windy days, I get a basic AK-47 spread but I never shoot anywhere near as bad as web videos. I never use civil web videos , as a reliable source or ones, using red dots & ‘scope hits all over the place. I use AKOU & myself, as sources. I would rebarrel that thing.
Basically, to tie me, you would have to shoot all bullseyes, with an AK or AR.
To accustom shooters for the 300 & 100 meter distances, which places 200 meters at center mass as well. 3-1-2, center mass.
I use setting “2” for the U.S Army’s 25 Meter C-Qual Course. I then change the setting to “1” for 100 yards and don’t adjust. I could adjust. For multiple targets to 300 yards: 25, 50, 75, 100, 150, 200, 250 & 300 meters/yards, I use battle setting from my “2 @ 25 yd” or “1 @ 100 yd” zero.
Drive-by’s & CQB are examples. They are inside of 100 yards; so, a 25 yard zero would be better & target hits are lower. At -25 yards, if you aim center mass, you hit lower, the gut. AK vs. AK firefights, in like drive-by’s, you ‘wanna go, with a Draco or underfolder because of car windows & shooting in rooms. So, I have used all of the settings.
