Hey fellas would you rather have a .140 or .156 rear notch rear site with a .125 front?

Figured the wider the rear notch the quicker target acquisition with a slight loss in accuracy?

Or is it moot?

I prefer the .140 to the .156. The latter is quicker, but you do sacrifice some precision.

It's far from moot with .25 being my exact preference in terms of F/R corelation. I pick it up faster with everything else being equal. The .156 / .125 (assume you're looking at 10-8) would be my choice.

I really like a .150 rear notch and a .115 front post. I also like a .140 rear notch and .110 front post.

However, for a .125 front post the rear sight notch needs to be .156... at least for me.

There are about as many answers to this question as there are eyeballs.

About all I can add is that there seems to be a point of diminishing returns where you reach a width where when you go past it, you'll notice that you are having to work harder to make accurate shots. I notice it most when I try to shoot groups.
