How many yards? And what are your groups like with other guns with open sights?
One part of the equation is the performance of the gun, the other part is the performance of the shooter. Some people are good iron sigh shooters while others are not.

I’ve always heard the old timers say, ”if you can keep it within a coffee can- you can hunt with it at that range.”

Welcome to the forum!

A 2" group at 100 yards with iron sights is just about as good as it gets with that orange "dot" as your target, and with factory ammo. So I say, good shootin'.

With my eyes and stock open sights I would not be happy but would take it. I would adjust sights for a cold rifle and take my time at the range and sight it in cold. I’m sure it would tighten up.

I'd be happy with that if the groups were consistent. It's more than enough to ethically kill game animals.

While it's not bad, I'd try a few different brands of ammo, and see if it tightens up. You might be surprised at what you find.
