I took SKS out the the range and fired off maybe 500 it might have got too hot and now is shooting up and to the left. I need to clean it but it seems that it overheated.

Please help

How quickly did you fire it? You MAY have overheated the barrel and burnt it out, but I HIGHLY doubt it.

Make sure the flash suppresor (if there is one) does not have marks from the bullet scraping it. Give it a good cleaning, especially the barrel and try again. Could also have been your sights were knocked by something. Did you drop it? I wouldn't think the sights would be knocked out of place just from dropping, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Highly undoubtful that you burned the barrel out. My money is on it being overheated. Did you let it cool to "standing temperature" before you verified this drift distance?

Is it shooting high and left with both the scope and iron sights? If so, does it shoot to the same place with both sights?

Check the barrel with a good straight edge to see if it's bent. I would not have thought it was possible to overheat a SKS to the point that the barrel bent but I have been known to be wrong before.

Use your other eye. You burned your shooting eye out.

I was just wondering if RBCD is any good I think I will stick to JHP

I doubt you did any damage to the rifle,maybe just heated up/warped the wooden stock?I would go ahead and clean it really well,take the action out of the stock and see if the forearm warped and is contacting the bbl,or not contacting the bbl at the end.
Good luck

Apparently you have found my account and now your lust for me runs wild, you appear more frivolous then first thought. Your stalker like behavior is inexplicably out of control. I am not sure how to relay this to you, but I am unequivocally unattracted to you
Please stop proclaiming your love for me. I don’t intent on ever dating you.
