Hope to offer a little clarity.
When aiming your gun directly at the targets bullseye.
You move your Rear sight in the same direction you want your gun to shoot.
(You want your gun to shoot left you move your Rear sight to the left to correct)
You move your Front sight in the opposite direction you want your gun to shoot.
(If you want your gun to shoot to the left. You move your Front sight to the right to correct.)
If your unable to get enough movement from your Rear sight to correct. Re-center the Rear sight. Bump your Front sightly a little off center (in the direction earlier stated.) Not much just a little. Then make adjustments to the Rear sight again.
Keep this routine up until its sight picture is corrected.
Keep in mind your Front sight doubles the movement made by your Rear sight. So a little movement to your Front sight (does make) a big difference in sight correction.
Changing your powder charges either increases your projectiles arch or can also reduces the projectiles arch as well.
More powder used the less arch. (Your rifles projectile will impact on its target >lower.)
Less powder used the higher the arch. (Your rifles projectile will impact its target >higher.)
I hope this info helps sighting a firearm in >a simple task to do.
