I just got a PTR 32. I have had it to the range once. I only put 20 rounds of Tula through it. I was shooting at a 50 yard target. The rifle seems fairly accurate. I had no ftfs or ftes. I measured the bolt gap before I went out. It was 013. I just added a 4x scope to it that I will sight in on Sunday. I have some handloads and some yugo that I will try out Sunday. I wish there were a larger selection of bullets available for 7.62x39.

I'm hoping the rifle does 1-1/12 MOA.

Someone that has theirs longer may be able to give you a better idea on accuracy.

I had the 32 out to the range today. This is the just the second time out. First time out fired 20 rounds Tula with no problems. I did not clean the rifle after. Today I started with a Mag of Yugo, first three rounds fine. Then choke city. Every round stove pipes and failure to extract which caused double feeds. I didn't get through the whole mag. 2nd mag handloads (27 gr Rel 7 with 125 gr SPs) same result stove pipes and failure to extract. Called it a day!
I cleaned the rifle after I got home, very dirty more patches then I have ever used to clean the bore. Bolt and carrier also very dirty. I cleaned it and lubed it well. Will try handloads again next trip. I also have another recipe for next batch of handloads. I will not use the Yugo again.

I will report after next range trip.

Yes I used water with dish soap to clean the 32. It wasn't hot though. I have a spray bottle that I used to sprayed the bolt, carrier and the barrel. I hope it was enough. The PTR 32 does have less recoil (faster follow up etc) and I have a 308 AR that I really like.
