    everything I've read on here says "front sight oppsite, rear sight same". If that is true if I raise the rear sight it will shoot even higher.
    The Browning tech support guys seem to agree with that concept.

    Sights are factory?

    Front sight opposite and rear sight same is correct. Could be the way you shoot too. If you're at the limits of your rifle front sight then you may need a new front blade. About $35 at brownells.

    I put a new front blade on mine. I was roughly at 10” high at 100yds. Put a new blade in and I was golden.
    Also, if you’re gonna keep it shooting only irons, you may want to consider a peep sight. Skinner makes a great one that looks snazzy too.
    With a peep sight you can put a scout scope, should you need magnification.

    What height blade??? Mine has a hood on the front sight.

    Ok so the base is 3/8” and I got the tallest one they had which was 0.6”. I got it that height and took a file with me to the range. I slowly filed it down to adjust to my shooting. I also set the rear sight to about midway. You can’t really tell which height is ideal for you since each person shoots differently. That’s why I got the tallest one. That way I was sure to be able to get it where I wanted. I set the rear one midway so I can still go up and down if I need it to.

    I hope this helps.
