:eek: "POINT BLANK"!-You have to "ADJUST" your iron sights to hit your so-called targets at "DIFFERENT" yardages!!!!!!!--You Just "CAN"T" Leave the sight at one position and expect to hit everything at 'DIFFERENT' Distances!! Plain +simple! You might want to try scopeing that 'Sweet old gun'!!-Good luck in your choice!:t -Blkwollf!!!

I have no idea what you just said. I take it that GRAMMAR wasn't taught in your school? :D

usually , on all the mod 60 type variants, the bottom rung of the step ladder, is about where hi velocity bullets will need to be set on, between 50 and 100 yds.
your ammo should say on the box if it is hi velocity.

Assuming it uses the typical "ramp" for the rear sight, try filing down a notch or two to get ther rear sight low enough that you're on target....or remove the ramp entirely--that might getcha close.
If not, you can always file down the notch in the rear sight....or get a longer front sight post...or replace the rear sight with a shorter one.

I have a 925 which I believe is the same except the trigger group.
zeroed at 25, zeroes again at 75 with a light rise at 50, at 100 I need to hold 2 miles up, 130 3 mills u and 150 yards needs a 5 mil holdover to hit clay targets stuck in the ground.
At 150 yards yesterday I shot a 2 1/4" group vertically. I figure at that distance the way the bullet drops that any variation is powder charge from the factory or the slightest nick in the bullet or the wrong aiming point will cause that big of a group.

Still divide that by 3 for 50 yards and it gives a 3/4" group, which this gun is capable of using CCI mini-mag hp's.

I would scope the model 25 with a good 3-9X32 or 40 and be done with it.
