Does there exist such a thing as real high-grade Gringo (or Finnish; hell, I don't care) 5.45 X 39?

My ORF/Bulgie shoots pretty darn okey-dokey with Barnaul and an Aimpoint. However, my curiosity is killing me. I'd love to slide a scope on the gun, fuel it up with some high-octane ammo and see what it'll really do. I have this gnawing suspicion that it may out shoot my neeto-keeno, gyro-stabilized, satellite-uplinked 16" AR.

Thanks to all.

Find some RWS Dynamit Nobel 5.45. I bought some about 3 years ago and still about half a box. Wee better than Barnaul in my limited experience, and priced like Black Hills. More likely to turn a 2" group than a 2 1/2" group.

Got any idea where I can locate some?

Thanks much.

Nope, mine was from a dealer with some 5.45 E Ger bolt guns for sale. BUt that ammo brand is stocked by some .22 fanatics so you may find a lead there.

ITAK:

I looked all over their site but couldn't find it. Is it buried in their "Dealers Only" section?

Thanks kindly.
