sight adjustment 50 ft to 50 yd

Post by orpheoet on Thu Sep 11, 2014 8:07 am

I just shot a 91 sf at 50 ft(my best so far). I dont move my sights often. Frankly its only recently that I'm shooting well enough to move them much...Anyway my question is I practice at 50 ft, but I'm doing an outdoor 2700 this sunday. Can someone give me an idea of how much to raise the sights or if I even should? I'm using a Springfield Range Officer and the classic 4 gr of Bullseye with a 200 LSWC for sf. 4 gr WST and 185 LSWC for timed and rapid. Thanks

For me the sights stay the same at 50 ft. and 25 yards. I move them up a few clicks (five with the UltraDot) for the long line.

The answer is going to be different depending if you have iron sights or a dot AND how far above the bore centerline the dot centerline is.

Either way it's not enough to put you out of the 10 ring and most likely you would stay inside the X ring on the 50yd target.

Iron sights. Thanks for the replies. I ended up just holding a little into the black. As I said I'm only recently able to keep my shots on paper consistently so dialing in the sights isnt the biggest concern!
