Dad taught it to me like this when I was a kid.Forestry242 said:Sighting in the Deerhunter 50cal yesterday, every shot was hitting about 4 inches to the right. My rear fiber optic sight is the only sight i can adjust. In my mind, if i need to hit my target more to the left i should move my rear sight a hair to the right.
everything i read online tells me the opposite, or its explained in a way thats even more confusing.
Can anyone help me out?
"The front sight chases and the back sight runs"
When adjusting the rear sight move it the "opposite" direction of where your hitting. If your hitting left move it right. If your hitting right move it left.
If your adjusting your front sight move it toward where your hitting.
