keep in mind a vast majority of sniper platforms are chambered for the 7.62 round so its more then accurate at long range.

If given a choice, most would not prefer the AK, or its round.
oh wait, they dont have a choice. The world is flooded with ak's because they are cheaply and easily made. There are reports that the taliban have built AK's in caves.
A world flooded with ak's leads to a world flooded with its ammo.

BigDave: Great post! thanks. I have a 7.62x54R and there is a WORLD of differance between the stopping power and range there. Naturally, more sniping rifles will be chambered in these sized calibers. I too have heard very few sniper rifles chambered in the 7.62x39 due to the fact that it is considered a Small Arms ammunition. Even on it's best day, the 39 has nothing near the flight and accuracy of the 54R. It's like comparing a Ford Focus to a C5R Corvette...
