I would hope thats doable.
If not, I'd be really disapointed.

Sights, or optics?

An SKS will easily hit a human torso reliably at 300 yards, the vast majority of the time an inaccurate rifle is an issue with the shooter, not the rifle. I wouldn't be surprised at all if you get an 8-10" group at 300 with a decent load.

Not overly disturbing, but it did get my attention. I guess there are times when self-defense might be required out to 300 yards (think "Deliverance"), but it's a stretch.

Maybe "deer-sized" would be better.
