    Effective range of a bolt action 7.62x39

    While looking around for a 223 Ive noticed quite a few bolt action 7.62x39s such as the howas. Ive always thought of them as big projectiles that fall out of the air reasonably quickly. Does anyone know to what range they would be effective on goats etc and what would be the longest range they would remain consistently accurate to (with decent hunting rounds)?
