Amos, you left out the whisk(e)y.
LH, with this rifle I sighted to the center of the target (hunting hold) instead of a six-o'clock target hold (ye olde "pumpkin on a post" sight picture). When I used the six-o'clock hold for the first three round it shot center, but low. So I lowered the rear sight, which raises the point of aim, as much as I could. That did it and I could mentally compensate for the rest. Fortunately, what wind there was came from directly behind me so I didn't have to correct right or left (difficult using a rifle with fixed, iron sights you'd have to adjust sideways with a punch and a hammer). If you're really interested in the details, which I sincerely doubt, you can search the Web for "sight picture" and find more information than you'll ever want or need to know.
