Shooting Long Range With A 7.62x39 AK

While calling a Krebs Custom Vepr RPK an “AK” is technically accurate, I’m pretty sure that few would consider the $1,799 rifle equipped with a $359 scope to be a fair approximation of an average AKM.


MAC takes this very nice custom rifle out to 500 yards, which is pushing the limits of the 7.62×39 intermediate cartridge, a round most typically used inside 200 yards.

We’ll be building our own AK with Rifle Dynamics in just a couple of weeks when they come to Jacksonville, NC. Considering Jim Fuller’s reputation as one of the nation’s most knowledgeable AK gurus, I’m hoping that rifle will be every bit as accurate as this one in Tim Harmsen’s capable hands.
