Does anyone have an idea where to start the Redfield rear sight on the M65 for say 50 yards? Id like to have a rough starting point before I go shooting and pull my hair out fiddling with the sight.

Shoot it at 25 yards first, you will likely be on paper at 25 yards.

Unfortunately the range I go it is fixed at either 50 or 200 yards.

The rear sight is set right in the middle for elevation, I dont know what kind of range that sets me up for?

Just pick out a rock or dirt clod at 50yds with a lot of space around it . Shoot from the bench with a rest . Should take less than a mag to get close / on . Then switch to the paper to fine tune .

This is actualy very little help .  :happy:

You can loosen the two screws and move the plate quite a bit . 

The object is to look at the ballistic chart for the round you are using , then sight it in where you want , then set the plate to zero , then adjust your # of minutes from there to the distance you're shooting at ( different from your sight in range ) .
