Nice shooting and a good group once it settled down.

There are two different PH5Cs the later one had approximately 0.5MoA

Different shaped 'knobs'

Got out to the range today to try the new Matchmaker Foresight.  Very pleased with it.  

As might be expected, my initial sighter shots were high at 200 yds since the point of aim is now “center mass” rather than a 6:00 hold on the black aiming mark.  I had a + .015 front sight blade previously, so the globe front sight is a bit taller, by about 1 size.  

I expect as I get used to the different sight picture, scores will improve.  

Here is the first group at 200 yds.   I did not initially boresight the rifle, since the change in front sight height from the standard blade sight was fairly small.  

First two sighters in the 7 ring at 12:30 right next to each other using my previous 200 yd zero rear sight setting.

I lowered the rear sight a bit too much for shot #3, which was just outside the 10 ring at 5:00 (I keep forgetting that the PH 5c sight adjustments are about 1.25 MOA per 4 clicks and not a true MOA). 

Then adjusted up 1 MOA and Left 1 MOA.  The next 6 shots held a good group, under 1.5 MOA, but a bit high and left of center. 




Now to find the time to head back to the 1000 yd range at Spencer, TN…



Good shooting!!

Look at your last few shots. The others were adjusting the zero & so I don't really count them.
maybe, just maybe 1down & 1right & have at it?

The globe & micrometer are awesome bullseye sights!
Awesome shoot for new equipment!

I bet 1 down and 1 over would be right on.

Yes, this combination of sights is showing promise.  

My PH5C has the cylindrical knobs that are 1/4 MOA clicks.  Not a true .25 MOA click due to the sight radius on the No. 4, more like 0.31 MOA per click. 

 IIRC, 4 clicks moves the rear sight by 0.010 inches.
