Yeah but your AK can't hit a target at 500 meters. The secret to any AR platform is to clean it properly. I'm an ex Marine and never had cared for AK's, they are dependable because they are built loose.
The folks at Windham were the original makers of the Bushmaster AR's until the Freedom Group bought out Bushmaster and changed things around.

I have shot match-grade ammunition and the cheap, smoking Russian made ammunition. The only problem with the Russian ammunition is that it dirties the weapon faster. Having said that, even with a dirty weapon, the Colt AR-15 still continues to perform.
I suppose there would be a time when enough carbon or dirt or residue could build up in the weapon to make it fail to work properly but after shooting mine relentlessly for many years I have not found that point.
