The standard Williams WGRS sight that comes on the BC is a great hunting sight, remove the aperture and use the holder as a ghost ring and it's real quick to aquire a target. The front hooded sight is probably not the best choice for close hunting but with the right insert, could serve ok. I've hunted with the WGRS rear sight on my muzzle loaders for years, they work best with a firesight up front. The front sight on my BC was too high, with the rear sight in the highest position on the ramp, POI was still 8" low at 50yds. I ended up replacing the front .584" high 17A sight with another 17A that is .404" high. That in combo with the Williams FP target rear sight, put me dead on at 100yds with 405gr loads in the 45-120 BC using XMP5744.
