I installed a POSP 6x scope on my bone-stock 16 inch Vepr. The scope is quite big and makes the rifle heavy and ungainly, good for precision work but I wouldnt want to drag this out anywhere. Honestly I have been having some second thoughts based on other folks reports and the fact that I wont be able to install one of the Sabrewerks scope mounts on it. But I wanted to be able to do some accuracy testing to see if the Vepr is any better than the Saiga.
I am shooting this at about 85-90 yards, prone using a small garbage pail for a rest, so not the most stable but good enough. I started with the Ukrainian 69 not-so-non-corrosive; not bad shot about 3.1". I tried Wolf 60 HP - about 2.5", not as good I hoped. All of this was about as good as my Saiga. I was going to try some Wolf 55 grain but remembered that I had a box of Hornady 60 grain ammo. I was quite amazed to see about a 0.9" group when I measured this back inside. The Vepr can hang in there! In fairness I should try the Siaga with the Hornady ammo too.
If this site would let me post an imageshack pic, I would post that.
