You cannot sight an AK in at 25 yards for this reason. It's not the ballistics that make this impossible, but rather the paralax of the system.
Move out to 100 yards for any serious sight setting activities.
This just is not the case. I have sighted in numerous AKs at 25m(pretty darn close to 25y) and have not had issue.
There is actually some pretty good video in Travis Haley's Adaptive Kalash about zeroing the AK at 25m
Maybe I misunderstand parallax, but I don't see it being a factor with iron sights, only red dots.
