See if you can shoot both so you'll understand more about them. The ak vs ar discussion had been going on for decades. Both good platforms and both good for different situations and reasons. My brother shoots an ar on a rifle team but after recently shooting my ak, he loves it. Same with me and his ar.

Basically the ak is a close in a battle rife. I watched a video once that showed both platform shooting at a 50 gallon plastic drum full of water. I believe it was 100 yards. The 556 didn't penetrate all the way through. The 762 was thru and thru.

Here is an example of a saiga 7.63 at 200 yards. Btw, that's 3 shots after zeroing. And yes, scope was used. ;)
