I'm leaning more toward a receiver sight.

I've got a pretty good red dot in the safe, but I don't care for batteries unless they are for a flashlight.

Most likely with screw in apetures.

Two receiver sights. The one on the left is a Williams and wii accept other aperture,
The other is a ghost ring and comes with two rings of different sizes. Mounts on a Picatinny type rail or a single Weaver base

In bright light, like outdoors at the range on a sunny day, it is easy to acquire. I estimate that it is as bright as a red dot sight set between 5-10.
The fiber optic feed works well. The brighter the day, the brighter the sight.
As it gets darker, the tritium takes over.
The tritium vial lasts about 10 years. I have to send mine in for service. The tritium is done though the sight still works in the outdoors.

Best story I ever read about shooting a 4 bore was about an old time elephant hunter who carried the black powder in a bag, a "load" was a "handful" of powder followed by the enormous ball - recoil was enough to knock you down. Forward to more modern times I had a 20 bore (.62 cal) that was rated up to 200 grains of BP. I shot 150 grains with a 20 bore ball, about 220 grains - shootable but left a black and blue mark on your face. 150-200 grains with a 500-600 grain bullet will be brutal.
