Recently I've been so fed up with how long it takes me to acquire my target with my Pentax 4x12 gameseeker, that I'm considering having iron sights installed on my savage 110 .30-06. I can get a shot off much, much faster with iron sights, and am more confidence in my accuracy as well. The only thing that worries me is 200+ yard shots, and lack of precise placement of the shot on the animal's body (deer/elk) with iron sights, as the front bead would have to cover up part of the target. What are some suggestions for models of iron sights (XS systems?/NECG?) or low power scopes renowned for quick acquisition? I realize much of the issue depends on familiarity and practice with the scope, but I am yet to feel natural with my scope in the field, after hours and hours put in. Thoughts?
Mods: I posted this in the optics forum, but thought that I would post it here as well, as I only hunt in Colorado. Apologies if this is a major breach of conduct!
