What kind of zeroing and trajectory information can anyone share regarding 762X39 out of an AK (16 inch barrel)?

I think if you zero at 200 yards, it' will have dropped 10" at 300 yards and 40" at 400 yards.

I know if you zero at 150 yards, the bullet will be at the same elevation at 50 yards, and no more than about 1.5" high at 100 and 1.5" low at 200.

At 25 yards with your rear sight set to 100, adjust front sight so that you are hitting about 3/4 inch LOW. This will put you on paper at 100 yards with rear set to 100. The Russians shoot at 100 meters with the rear sight set to 300 and adjust so that it hits about 10 inches HIGH. They know there will be an elevation error because of milling tolerances in the rear sight ramp and different ammo. This error will be angular, it grows with range. They will take a smaller error at 100 yards instead of a larger error at 300 and beyond.
