Czech Vz58 to 500yds: Practical Accuracy

One of my favorite channels AND one of my favorite carbines.

The post above is opinion, and I am probably totally wrong, so please pardon me if I offend anyone in any way. I am speaking only for myself and just sharing my thoughts, not trying to start an argument with anyone, and if you disagree with anything I have said, I concede your correct.

Thanks for sharing this. I've seen him test a Remington 700 once before using the same format and probably the same spotter, and just thought he was a Remington guy, but obviously not. I will look further into his work out of curiosity.

Thanks again,
Richard

I don't know how he does this.  His accuracy at 400 yards is better than mine at 50.

Take an Appleseed course: https://appleseedinfo.org/

And younger eyes do do much better w/ combloc irons than older ones.

I agree.  The Appleseed course was one of the best things I've ever done.  About $60 for two days of excellent marksmanship training.  It's old-school and geared for long distance, so there won't be any room-clearing drills or operator stances. 

As for older eyes, an aperture sight near the eye cut my groups in half.

Aperture sights also help folks w/ less than perfect eyes use red dots/bring them into focus as well.

Appleseed is classic marksmanship, but there's great value in that -- and it's very low cost training.

Many of the most prominent firearms trainers, especially those coming from SF and SOF like Pat McNamara, Larry Vickers, Kyle Lamb, etc, all focus on the fundamentals.  But classes from them or similar will cost you 10x what you'll pay at Appleseed...
