I am pretty excited to own a Snakehound Machine custom VEPR .308 . I was mulling around ideas about my next rifle and decided on the VEPR platform. I like the mechanics of the AK and thought this would be a nice mid-range (out to 400 yds, possibly 600) choice. Owen at http://snakehoundmachine.com was in the process of building the VEPR as a new platform and I asked to be one of the first models sold. When it was finished we took it out to zero, and it shot like a dream. The felt recoil was like a factory stock AK, but after zeroing at 50 yds we took it out to 100 and the first 3 rds are what I have pictured above. I called the flyer but those 2 shots almost directly on target should speak to the function of this weapon. (Especially considering I have not done much scope shooting out to 100 yards).
