Anybody had any experience shooting this(1970's production Romanian 8x57) at longer ranges? Recently put it through my 98k and had very poor results shooting at the 500 meter mark. Granted it was my first time firing this rifle, but the crown is tight the rifling is strong if a little dark and the receiver is properly bedded even swaged the barrel afterwards and it came out to a .323... not much of a wind and absolutely no consistency to these rounds they were everywhere. I am a pretty experienced shooter at this distance and every other rifle and ammunition combination I brought with me performed well
