Thanks for the reply Scorch.
I looked at front sights on Brownell's website. There are taller ones available. You bring up a good point about full power loads. I have not put any together yet for this rifle. This rifle was an impulse buy as I could not leave it behind when the seller offered to let go for $500. So I figured I'd use it for rabbit and chuck control at close ranges (more challanging than my scoped 10/22) in my back yard hence why I started out with low velocity loads.
You can let things happen to you -or- you can make things happen for you
