    Target Shooting the TT (Zastava M57)

    Salams,

    I've never been a fan of the .30 cal due to it's over penetrative nature and accuracy concerns. I had some .30 (7.62x25) ammo lying around which I wanted to get rid off and thought to take my Zastava M57 for some target shooting. I was quite surprised at the results. I fired about a 100 rounds all at 15M, targets below.

    The first two targets were shot casually with me not expecting much but with encouraging results I started to shoot it more carefully to see what max I could get from it.

    The results were beyond my wildest expectations. I never thought the 7.62x25 caliber could be so decently accurate. A 2 / 2.5 inch group at 15 M is excellent specially when taking into account human error.

    Try bench rested shots at 25 m will come about the same.No rest shots at 25 are around 3-5 inchers
    There are only TWO times when you can have too much ammo... When you are on fire or when you are drowning...

    I think m57 is must have type of gun.

    very nice groups indeed but it is no ordinary shooter but Chief. It was the fastest hand gun round until the 357 magnum hit the market. Major flaw is over penetration! could take down 2 men if standing one behind the other.

    Great shooting.
    Higher recoil from a lighter weapon makes it difficult to learn and practice the trigger and follow up.
    If done correctly like Abbas did it can show some amusing art work.
    My finger on the trigger with what's so foreign in my sights ..... Anger rise !
    We wage a war ... our nature to preserve... By any means... our enemies be gone...!
    No longer can we wait, As an enemy drains our future,As the light of a new day shines, Our anger fuels our march this dawn

    @Spaypanther, Kamran_uk, Aquarius, Survivalist, Trigger Happy, GunPsycho, Faheem, MIdressTaj & Achilles. Thank you for the kind words.

    Frankly I was quite surprised at the targets myself. Both brands of ammo shot with the same accuracy.

    @Faisji I'm really bad shooting with the bench rest. If only we had a handgun rest with the proper gun holds. After the results above I believe your assessment of 4/5 inch group at 25m is quite right.

    @MIdressTaj Right you are, an interesting thing about the M57 is that the trigger smooths out quite a bit around the 700 rounds mark. I think that is the break in threshold for this gun.

    Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.

    I think I will give credit to the shooter more than the gun . It is a decent gum but the results are due to your shooting and the gun itself
