OK. In qualifying the the USAF, we shot at 'simulated 100, 200 and 300' yard targets. That is to say a small target on a big piece of paper at 15 or 25 yards. I could see the target fine. No problem. Now I have my AR and I am shooting irobn sights at 100 yards on 100 yard targets and I have problems.
Through the apature, the dang target is smaller than my pinkie nail. I cannot even see the red square on the target. I know my glasses are a little old, but dang man.. I would be happy if I get 5" groups (actually I am just counting holes in the paper now.)
I hear about guys hitting 2" groups and smaller with iron sights at 100 yards and I am thinking 'what in the world'. I know pratice pratice pratice, but I cannot even see the target well enough to get any grouping.
Am I an idiot or what? (man, i know that opens me up LOL)
Thanks - VMAX
Try a black bull about 8" in diameter on your target. Use black spray paint for this. I also use A-1 round front sight posts that I turn down to .055 to .050. Might help.
