    I swapped this AK and some $$ for a Savage 110 in 300 Win Mag...Two armadillos meet their maker today by her hand [elim]

    Even I managed 1.5 inch groups at around 100 yards.

    Sounds like I need to come down with my AR and we can have a real test on the effectiveness of the 5.56 versus the 7.62X39. Now that I know you have targets worthy of a test like this!!!

    You didn't clean out that armadillo shell and make a hat out of it did you?

    Now we both have AR's, AK's, and .300's. Great minds think alike. Plus we can share ammo when the commies/Natzi's/MZB's/Tree Hugger's/ZOMBIES invade.

    Well, I got the single shot in 5.56, the new AK and a .270, so guess you all still got me beat but could at least share ammo for 2 out of 3 if UPS is still running! lol [peep] [beer]

    No, I didn't make a hat out of it...had too big a hole in it, and the second one was about 100 yards away on the other side of the fence on someone else's land:D

    What brand, weight and cartridge do you use?

    I, or rather my .300 is partial to the "Hornady Custom 165 gr. Boat Tail Spire Point Interlock Bullet" with a muzzle velocity of 3100 fps.

    my .300 loves the Winchester Fail Safe. Can drill holes with them and would drop a bull elk in his tracks..... If I could ever find a elk to drill holes in! Guess the gun can't do it's part until I do mine!

    Trigger work is next, and of course optics upgrades are always good.

    The trigger seems pretty nice, but yeah it is begging for a Leopold:)

    Was it one of the Savage models with the adjustable accu-trigger?
