This was pre electronic consumer laser range finders. It took me 4 shots with the iron sights to get the on the desired impact point. With my new purchased Chinese SKS. I paid 68$ for it in the factory cosmoline. I could keep most of my shots in a 3'x3' square. Many of them in a 1'square.
Obviously that is in no way sniper accurate. But we were amazed at how well it shot with surplus ammo.
Hopefully, soon I can afford a long range rifle and scope so I can learn how to make the kind of shots y'all are doing. The math is kind of daunting to me so I'm looking at the Horus reticule and the Ziess 1000 reticule.
