Sorry for non AR post, but I figured many on here would know the answer.
Looking at getting Tula 122 or 124 gr FMJ. (bulk ammo for AK using factory iron sights)
Question is, how much difference will 2 gr make in bullet flight?
In other words, if I dial in the iron sights using 124 grain, how far off would 122 grain hit? 1/2" +/- at 100 yds. or more like 6" +/- at 100yds?

Hiya VW    Ive got some ak's and I dont think that with iron sights and the 7.62 ammo you are using it wouldnt make a whit of difference between the grain weight of the two different bullets you are using....after all when we talk of moa on ar's and other rifles...the ak shoots mom.....min of man....im not trying to be a gun snob or a wise acre...but all the ak's ive got hardly shoot moa...and ive got some nice ones...so long story short...dont sweat it <munch>  Wash

Thanks. I kinda figured 2 gr wouldn't matter much...just hate to buy bulk and then regret.
