Now we need a range report! How does that puppy group?

A .308 Saiga is definitely on my want list if I ever see one for a reasonable price again!

Re: Saiga 308 build complete (almost)

Not bad, here's 8 rounds of federal 168 gr match. I fired the first group...made a scope correction up and to the left...fired group 2...saw the group through my scope and shifted my poa up to the top of the green( so i didn't mess up group 2) then fired the last 2 through the same hole. This was all pre- conversion. I'm interested to see what she'll do now that the trigger doesn't suck.

Edit to add: this is what convinced me to invest in doing the conversion.
