3/16 to 1/4 diametere is good for hunting..Alot of the quality sights have a ring around the pin housing..if you line the ring diameter with the peep diameter and center your pin from there you will be a much more accurate shooter..I have a G5 meta peep that is 3/16 diameter and it works very well for me even in low light..Also agree with pin size..my 25 and 40 yrd pins are 0.19..50 thru 70 are 0.10
wow...thanks for the info guys. wish i would have asked earlier...before i bought my sight with .029 pin...damn it!
Exactly what I do. My peep sight was a little to big, and I was having a hard time being consistent, I got a smaller peep, and it tightened my groups up a lot. Just have to be careful not to go to small or in low light conditions you will not be able to see very good.

The big change was smaller pins, .010 axcel sight. One other change I made last year was a new release. The old release had a wrist strap and a solid piece to the head. I switched to the same thing only with a strap from the wrist part to the head. I think somehow I was torqueing it and causing fliers.
