I have a Romanian SAR3, an AK in 5.56NATO. I liked the gun and felt it had more accuracy potential than the open sights allowed. So after shopping around, I decided to go with the Bushnell 1x32 mil-dot scope...consumer reviews were pretty strong on it and its $200 price matched up well for this gun. The general opinion is it's well built and tough, holds zero and has a generous field of view with a sharp T reticle with adjustments for low light, green or red. I used the Ultimak gas tube rail as a mount, it's solid. At the range, I started at 50yrds first, to get on paper and dial in the scope. I started out rough and required a bore sight- not easy with the parallax created by 2.5" + over the bore line. Luckily, the rangemaster got on me on the paper, 5" left POA on the first shot, so I went from there getting things dialed....I used Wolf crappy 62gr FMJ for this, then switched to better Turkish made brass cased 62gr ammo once I was more consistent. My last couple efforts at 50yrds got me a few fair 5 shot groups with the Wolf posting 2.5" and the Turkish stuff a decent 1.5" group, right on the money. The 'dot' can't be more than 2MOA, so despite having no magnification, it enabled a bit more precision than what one might expect from dot scopes. I felt ready to move out to 100yrds. I knew the parallax would probably affect POI/POA dramatically at 100yrds, it did, I was about 8" high. Used what was left of the turks to dial in at 100yrds. At the cease fire, I put up the square shoot-n-C target over the old bullseye, and broke out my Hornady TAP 75gr ammo. Someone suggested I reheat the barrel before going to paper, so two rounds went in the backstop....dunno if that mattered or not. The remaining 18 TAP's went into a 6" group, listing left of center, and throwing out the two worst fliers (and some did 'fly', my fault) had 16 into 4". Again, no magnification, dot scope and a gritty trigger. Not bad, really. I'll continue to mess with this setup and see what different loads yield as far as accuracy goes, but the gun seems pretty decent so far.
