So, I'm just wondering what kind of accuracy I should expect... Even with 20/20 vision, its hard to see much of any detail at that distance, and shooting of hand, it takes a lot of practice and breath work to put two shots in the same target. I was getting a ~10-12 inch group when I was taking my time with each shot. Shooting off a "bench" (we had two buckets stacked) brought it in slightly, but even at 25 yards (what I zeroed at) it was virtually impossible to see the holes in the target.

Are there any tricks besides a smaller aperture and finer sights (to see further, better) , bipod and solid bench (to hold gun more steady)? I'm using the KNC cross-hair front sight post, and a standard a2 rear iron sight.

With irons you should expect about 4 moa. This at least, tends to be my average.

If you are using better ammo and you are a good shot, I would say 3 is doable.

fancy ammo and an optic may shrink things even more, but I do not see the point in putting all that energy into 7.62x39 unless we are talking about a tabuk or maybe one of those CZ boltys in x39

making it accurate 'cause its cheap, I can hunt with it, and I won't have money for another gun for a while...

:D

well unless you are trying to hunt very small game at over 300yds, you should be fine. Plenty of folk use AK patterns and are fine.
