AK74s Iron Sights to 500yds: Practical Accuracy (Milsurp)

Practical Accuracy scoreboard now on Patreon! ?

The AK74 was first majorly fielded in the Soviet Afghan campaign in 1978, and the 5.45×39 cartridge was quickly nicknamed the “poison bullet” by the Mujahideen. The cartridge showed great promise in the Warsaw pact for years after, but never gained a major following in the west.

How does the tiny 5.45 caliber projectile do at greater ranges? How does the Kalashnikov system work in its purest form? We find out.
