Iron Vs Scope Will shooting well with one...

...make you a better shot with the other?

I ask this as I've recently had to remove my Burris scope to get a turret cap of whose screw was stuck. I don't want to put the scope back on until it is ready to use with all the bells and whistles attached.

However, that doesn't mean I am not itching to shoot the rifle, especially after a recent thread that included pointers on long range technique.

So, I thought to myself, "Why not put the rear sight back on and shoot iron sights for a while?"

It seems to me that if I could get half respectable groups with iron sights that would only serve to improve any shooting I do later with the aid of a scope.

Am I wrong?
Or would some range time with iron sights allow me to learn some basics that would otherwise be compensated for by a fancy 12x scope?
When the right to effective self-defence is denied, that right to self-defence which remains is essentially symbolic.
