Simple answer...

Aim Lower!

A lot of the older Eurpoean military rifles shoot "high" to us. Thats because we expect them to hit the point of aim at 100yds. They didn't.

Turn of the century recruits were taught to aim at the enemy's belt buckle. Not so much in the US, where we had a history of accurate shooting, but overseas, it was different. Aiming at the enemy's belt buckle, with the way they set up their sights, meant a decent torso hit, if the range estimation was a bit off.

I'm more in favor of either aiming low, or replacing the front sight blade. Making permanent modifications to the rear sight base lowers the value to a collector.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
