We decided to pit two post WW2 ideologies against one another at this match with two quintessential designs: the G3 and the AKM.
Some of the world went with full size "battle rifles" while others went with assault rifles firing intermediate cartridges, in fact the Soviets considered the AKM a submachine gun.
In this match, the AKM requires 3 hits on each target but he G3 only requires 2. This is an attempt to simulate the effect of the more powerful cartridge.
What was the best choice? Was there a wrong choice?
This is a 4 part series with each stage being discussed, with conclusions, about what we could learn about these rifles and ideas in from a practical shooting environment.
