    Aim low, or get a taller front sight. i have mine virtually the same way. Its fine for my slightly downloaded cast shooting, but hot 335 or LEV powders make for a high hit on the targeet. Trajectory catches up with a difference that small.

    Look under the sight and see if you can see daylight. If so you may have a small set screw preventing it from going lower. I have a Lyman 57 on my .30-30 it had the little screw down when I got it.

    Get the Skinner, his Patridge style front is the same target shooters have used for years in a Globe front aka square top.
