Or the Romanian 4x26 scopes for the PSL are elevation cammed for the 147gr 54r load. Marked at each 100m, clicks at each 50.

Expect the ballistic charts to be pure bbl drop, and not quite match moving up a few inches to you sight line then dropping from there.

Not sure what you've been given to work with but happy teaching!

It is not bad we have Romanian SVDs in decent shape for the class. I have seen more russian AKs here than I have ever seen in my life. The Afghans are not that bad they try hard but there are alot of culture that needs to be changed.

If I had MV, BC, and bullet weight, I could run a chart for you and E-mail it in MDI format. Unless you had other preferences, I'd calculate the table for 6" vital zone (3" above or below LOS) with ideal MPBR, but it will probably be around 25 yards initial zero and 200 yards second intersection w/LOS. I'd fine tune it to be exact though.

Does anyone have this data?

Actually an oversized AK from the Romys, SVDs are another gas system. Got glass with them? Expect the thin bbl to heat and open groups & string after the first mag.
