I recently aquired a Mid '80's Dragunov / PSL I recently aquired a Mid '80's Dragunov / PSL Romanian built .762x54R "Sniper Rifle"
I have quoted that classification because I realize it is not a true sniper rifle by today's standards, but it was on my bucket list and in it's day it was a very capable and deadly tool on the war front. I am also somewhat into military history. Anyway, I am looking for help with bullet drop math relating to the PS-01 scope which is a serialized matched to the rifle. If any of you out there are familiar with this scope please help. I know all of the ranging lines and relating bullet drop chevrons are in meters. I have zeroed the rifle @ 100 meters using Wolf Gold 150gr fmj ammo. I thought this round should be a close match to the round the scope was calibrated for. Benched and baged it groups .85" @ 100 meters. Using the chevrons on the glass @ 200 meters it groups 3.25 " however it is about 5" high and 1" right. A t 400 meters groups avg 6.5" and 8" high and 3" right. Using the math of 1 moa per 100 yards at 400 yards I should come up about 8 moa from zero. When I do it this way I cut my high hit ratio in half. I don't know, the water is getting muddy in my head,- meters, yards, Ft/s, minutes are minutes anywhere, right? Any Help ??? Also do you think the right from center is spin drift?
