    OK, I mentioned on another thread that I just got out to shoot my new converted Saiga a couple days ago, and here are the initial results:

    Round 1: 25 yards

    I was wrong in that I thought they were all pulling low left. They all went low right.




    Round 2: 50 yards

    At 50 yards, still aiming for dead center, I was pulling all my shots to the right (with the exception of the one bullseye!)




    Round 3: 50 yards

    By this time I was getting a little more comfortable. About halfway through, I compensated by aiming for the far left of the yellow circle, and started landing more shots in the red. Obviously I need to take a sight tool and make some adjustments. Fortunately I already have one, so next time we get some sunny weather, I'm going to head up to the hills, put the rifle on the Lead Sled, and do some shooting and tweaking.

    the target is 1" squares for a 4" bullseye, correct?

    It was a combo of new production Russian white box, and some loose surplus ammo I got at a gun show.

    You are correct.
