    Default Yugo SKS accuracy?

    Salutations!

    I bought a Yugo sks this past month and brought it home to rural ak. I liked it and its design, and finally shot it . I loved shooting it, but haven't tested its groups. I just bought the surplus stuff (7.62x39mm 123gr FMJ Golden Bear) and say it shot where I was aiming..
    Does anyone know how to better the accuracy of a SKS Yugo 59/66 with the grenade break?
    I plan on hunting with it eventually when I go out for caribou or buy some reindeer from the local heard, so I was hoping to get within 2-3 MOA within 100-200 yards.
    Anything helps, never owned anything of this sort.

    Cut about 1/8" off the end of the barrel and recrown it. Mine shot about 18" at 50yds until I recrowned it, then it went to about 3" at 100yds.
