22" barrel saiga vs. the 16" ? / 7.62 x 39

Has anyone had the opportunity to compare these?
I am curious how different the groups would be using the same ammo & optics, out to say 200m.
Would the 6" difference in the barrel length result in a substantial accuracy contrast ?

A longer barrel does not translate to a more accurate rifle. Each cartridge has its optimum barrel length achieve maximum velocity. I can't find any data for 7.63x39.
Would FPS effect accuracy at long rang?
Yes the longer the projectile is supersonic the more range you will get.
But the original poster asked about 200 meters.
