If you sight an AR in for 50 yards its going to hit no more then 2" up or down on target from 25 yards out to almost 300 yards.
It does have less drop as you illustrated. The 50 yard battle sight 0 puts you on again at 200. Here are the charts.

Hey Pat!
This is one classy statement.
Hats off to you Sir.
My own experience with the AK platform was positive in terms of accuracy as well, so I was always surprised with the opinions flying around on this forum.
Of course AR will still hold advantage on the longer distances, but for the CQB AK is a good choice IMO.

I could but that would mean sighting in my AK again with the dot afterwards. I sold the Mak and my SKS due to a tax bill. So the only AK I own now is the Saiga. To be honest I have not tried the Irons on this gun.
