    3/16 to 1/4 diametere is good for hunting..Alot of the quality sights have a ring around the pin housing..if you line the ring diameter with the peep diameter and center your pin from there you will be a much more accurate shooter..I have a G5 meta peep that is 3/16 diameter and it works very well for me even in low light..Also agree with pin size..my 25 and 40 yrd pins are 0.19..50 thru 70 are 0.10

    Exactly what I do. My peep sight was a little to big, and I was having a hard time being consistent, I got a smaller peep, and it tightened my groups up a lot. Just have to be careful not to go to small or in low light conditions you will not be able to see very good.

    I had a small peep for a while. Not my best idea. Had a hard time shooting in the evening at a hog so I went to a bigger one. The one I have on now is 3/16. The big change was smaller pins, .010 axcel sight. One other change I made last year was a new release. The old release had a wrist strap and a solid piece to the head. I switched to the same thing only with a strap from the wrist part to the head. I think somehow I was torqueing it and causing fliers.
