Merry Christmas guys!
I'll be building a rifle in a few months and will want open sights. I'll have two options , 14"-16" between the front and rear or 24"-26". Which is better if I wanted to hit a 200 yd target? The rear will be a ghost ring and the front, either a tritium or white post. These are back up to a low powered fixed scope.
The caliber will be 7-08 or 7x57, if that makes ay difference.
I'm thinking the longer the better, Is there an optimum distance?
