I looked up the heighth of the gold bead that is with the express sight and it is 430... I am cranked down as low with the rear sight as it can just about go... the loads I am shooting will likely not go much lighter but could speed up eventually ( 9.8 of unique ) in light of the fact that I may go faster bullets than now..... should I get a diiferent sight height for a replacement... I willl definitely want a screw adjustable rear sooner or later and the only ones listed on FA are the premiers... the sillouett and the target sights are not reccommended for the 4 3/4" barrell...

I am just concerned that when I crank it up more ( later,) I will be shooting too low to deal with... so what should I do ? as stated I will not go lower speed than at present, and when I was shooting slower, it was not much different, but I think that faster bullets will shoot lower yet ?? then how much higher a front sight should I go... what heights should I get... I am possibly ordering one from KOneill or from FA ( a square front... ) cause I just cannot wait for clements or bowen -- I am assuming they have a wait for that as well.

thanks

You need to get two different front sight heights. A .430" for the 325 grain bullets and a .480" for the 400+ grain bullets. I use this and do not have to change my rear sight settings.

Simple enough that is the kind of answer that only one who has the same gun would be able to tell me... thanks Rob..

I use a .430" undercut patridge on my 6" octagon ported FA, and that's what I recommend. I'm aware of dozens of .475's using that same height. I shoot only 400's @ near full strength, and shoot with a tight grip. My rear sight is up 1 click where I live, and that's what I want.
