So how far can you actually hit a target with a surplus SKS rifle?
This shooter nails a target repeatably way out at an astonishing 500 yards.
Watch as this old war horse shows it can bite at quite a distance too.
The old SKS rifle is only good for somewhat close range shooting with power similar to the 30/30 Winchester caliber, right? Well this video just might make you a believer; this old military rifle is far more able than you have ever dreamed.
Using a Yugoslavian SKS rifle with iron sights, this shooter hits the 500-yard target time and time again. He does this with bulk ammunition, too. Nothing special here.
How is that for an intermediate range caliber?
