    30-30 WIN iron sight adjustment

    Good focus point. Bull was more covered with my front bead. It worked but if it's not recommended I'll try your recommended sight picture next time out. This rifle has no manual so bear with me. The hammer has 3 positions. Fully cocked, half-cocked (more like a 1/3), full safe position...

    30-30 WIN iron sight adjustment

    I made it back to the range after adjusting the elevation and dovetail. After the elevation adjustment I'm shooting 1.5" low. I can tighten that up by getting a more consistent sight picture with practice. Elevation is dialed no further adjustments needed. JIMP is right, too many taps on the...

    Checking wind conditions before range session

    Unlike JIm, where I shoot there are no swirling winds, so it's very accurate for my location.

    Checking wind conditions before range session

    Very true. My kids like to watch the hurricanes and check the wind velocities.

    Checking wind conditions before range session

    I use Windy.com It's a great reference especially if you are going to sight in your rifles. You can click the exact spot on the map where you are going to shoot. In the tool bar, you can drag the day/time and hour, and check the wind conditions during the timeframe you want to shoot. I use...

    Absolutely!! Isn't the first time you all have helped me out. Probably won't be the last. Seriously genuine helpful folks on this forum. Virtual mentors!! Once I get it dialed in I plan on take my dad to the range so he can shoot his old 30-30 with my reloads. Should be fun!!

    30-30 WIN iron sight adjustment

    Everyone thank you! Very helpful. What is considered a good group at 100 yards, from the bench, with open sights? 1-4": great. 4-8": average. 9-12: below average.

    30-30 WIN iron sight adjustment

    Looking at the barrel there's really no reference to tell how much I've moved it. Any tips?

    30-30 WIN iron sight adjustment

    Thank you. I tapped the front site a little to the left to adjust the windage on my last range session. Tap slightly to the right to bring it back or use the dovetail. Sounds like either will work. Not sure if the dovetail or front sight is preferred. Using the dovetail would certainly look...

    30-30 WIN iron sight adjustment

    My understanding is I need to drop the rear sight (move the elevator forward) to drop the POI. In your experience, if I move the rear sight one click (either way), how much does that change POI? I'm going to put it on paper. Just don't know what to expect. Rifle is easy 1 click at 100 yards...
