A marksman hits his mark at 588 yards with a Russian Saiga AK47 and it’s pretty impressive.
If you thought AK47s aren’t capable of long range accuracy, then you don’t want to miss this sharpshooting video. The setup of this gun isn’t extraordinary; it has a cheaper red dot and was shooting cheaper ammunition.
However, the results are simply impressive.
Take a look at this Russian Saiga AK47 reaching out at long distances.
I don’t want to forget to mention that the conditions while shooting the AK47 was not exactly ideal. There was a 11 mph wind and shooting almost 600 yards makes it even more challenging.
The gun was a AK47 Saiga 7.62×39 and the ammunition he was using was Golden Tiger FMJ BT 124 grain.
Are you able to hit a target this far? It certainly takes some practice and patience, but I’m sure it’s rewarding. It’s time to hit the range; bring your trusty rifle and get dialed in.
