    Has anyone figured what grain and speed bullet to get the ladder/graduated rear sight to be accurate? My 308 goes from 1 to just over 300. I'm Assuming this will match the 200 peep too if it's original or are they generic? Be interesting to see if anyone found or developed a load to match. If not I guess I'll start playing but it would be cool to hear it see anyone else experience. Cheers

    My experience with .308 and 30-06 has been that a 150 grain bullet proved to be the most accurate and deadly on game up to and including large deer.

    Cheers for the reply Rick. Currently using 150gn in 308 and 30/30 and can't argue with you!

    Am I correct in thinking you have the screw on rear irons? I can see what looks like two 'beads'. I'm assuming are screws above the front checkering. I do like irons. I'm looking for a scope for mine but want to retain the irons and have the peep handy. Planning on using the peep in the day for pigs in scrub but will leave at home on long walks and have the irons as a backup. If can get removable rings that are reliable and sturdy ill use removable scope rings. Although I've used irons all my life, it's a skill that needs some 'maintenance' and it will be nice to use when varminting to keep the skill polished.

    The peep sight is generic, and adjustable for both windage and elevation by means of opposing set screws (I believe you might call that a grub screw).
