    Thats a 8shot group from my bisley which i sold a whle back at 50m (from memory)
    Its probably just over an inch something round there
    The 7.62x39 hunting wise is only a 150m max cartridge
    So they shoot plenty good enough for the intended purpose but they are not tack drivers
    The older besly bush ranger like i had is far better in build quality than the norinco jw103 but they are still very rough
    If you want cheap for plinking and the odd bit of hunting they are fine and do the job fine but in my opinion if you want to use it as a main gun for bush bashing id spend a bit more and get the zastava or cz

    I'm mostly after something just for plinking ,little recoil so kids can use it cheap ammo ,but if it's accurate enough il use it in the bush to.

    Some like the Barnaul, (especially people like myself who enjoy $70 per 100 for SP. BARNAUL - Price Lists )

    I did have a good run with the SST in mine, but dont have one for myself anymore....

    7mmwsm when you pick up a steel case that has an extra piece sticking out the end of it approx 3mm long and wide that could only have been folded back inside the neck on loaded round and you start to work out what kind of pressure that would have caused.....well you might change your mind....... we didnt have issue with ammo but having seen that we binned the rest and bought elsewhere.
