Re: Peep sights
I've used older 5Ds on Marlins with no problems. Set 'em and forget 'em. Still have one on a 1950s vintage 336SC in 35 Rem.
My deal, is removing the aperture and using it as a ghost ring of sorts. With the loads I shoot, the full front brass bead at 6 o'clock in the "ring", is dead-on at 100 yards (benched). The bead centered in the "ring", puts it on at about 150 yards.
Not a problem thus far, because the longest shot at a deer, has been about 90 yards. That'un keeled at the shot. So have the others shot with it since then.
Very quick acquisition on moving deer with that set up and I've come to love it. Same set up worked pretty well on the M444 I had for years, too.
