Hello All,

I am debating whether or not I can use a Burris AR-536 on on a Saiga AK74 or if I should use it on an AR. Or is there a similar optic in that price range I should look for with use on a 5.45?


Thanks,

There trajectory should be pretty close out to 300 or 400 yards. The 5.45 is a little slower with a slightly lighter bullet, but the BC should be decent. Those 5.45 bullets are long and sleek.

It should be pretty close for practical shooting
