Going long with a Romanian PSL marksman rifle (VIDEOS)

Eric with IV8888 breaks out the SVD-ish Cugir-made designated marksman rifle in 7.62x54R and goes for the steel out to 600 yards with surplus ball ammo.

While often mistaken for as a variant of Yevgeny Dragunov’s SVD, the PSL is actually derived from Papa Kalashnikov’s RPK light machine gun, sans full-auto capability, but it does favor the classic designated marksman rifle.

Using the standard PSOP Warsaw Pact optic and some Bulgarian Circle 10 ball ammo, this 1998-vintage DMR is about as Eastern European and it gets and, with some correction, makes the hits at long range with no problem.
