    Hey Eric...

    For the front sight: XS Sights "white line patridge" front blade (not partridge). This has a thin white line that your eye pics up well and you aim off of the top of the blade so your aiming point is not covered. A lot of guys use fiber optics but in various lighting conditions they can be hard to sight with, and at 100 yards they cover a lot of the target.

    For the rear sight:

    XS Ghost ring sight: Very simple clean install. Not a lot of extra hardware on your rifle.

    OR

    Williams FP peep: Much more adjustability than the XS Ghost ring. You can also order various aperture sizes depending on what you like better, or completely remove the aperture and use it like a ghost ring.

    Here is the link for Williams:

    Eric- I went with the Williams front and rear sights.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Uh,

    I haven't decided on my front sight, I am leaning towards the xs sight for the reasons you mentioned. It is hard for me to spend money with that company though, I do not like their pistol sights at all(I need to get over that)
    For rear sight I have a Williams fp sight sitting on the bench

    I like a peep with a fiber optic front sight. Works better for me in dim light.

    My factory Knight front fiber optic sight was broke off when I needed it most. Would a had a decent Colorado mule deer if I had replaced it with the Williams I have in it now before that hunt!

    I used a 300 gr Barnes x with sabots and 3 pyrodex pellets for New Mexico elk, Illinois whitetails and PA whitetails. Works good out to 200yds with my set up (scope). I' ve also used 240gr xtp .44cal pistol bullets and 2 pellets for PA whitetails. The 240 works in the flintlock with 90gr of FFF also. Of course those are with sabots if you are allowed. I have never recovered a Barnes bullet that went through an animal and they leave a blood trail that Ray Charles could follow. Just my .02.

    Just got my bullets from Thor today. Hopefully they perform as well as Thor customer service. Terry doesn't mess around when it comes to returning emails and shipping bullets/sizing packs.

    I have always used the 295 grain Powebelt. It has worked well for me on deer and elk. I hunt in Colorado where scopes are not allowed so I don't know how they perform long range. I don't shoot past 125 yards with open sights.
    A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.

    I'm going the heavy slow bullet this year. .54 cal sidelock with a 430 gr Hornady Great Plains bullet. A big hunk of lead. Too bad they stopped making the maxi-balls.

    My range is under 70 yds. So, i'm thinking 80 gr of Goex 2F. I'm trying to keep the recoil down for this old fart.

    I appreciate you guys mentioning Thor Bullets. I just ordered a pack of the Thor 300 grains in .501 diameter. It fit nice and snug in the barrel of my CVA Wolf Compact with faintly visible grooves from the rifling. I was going to go with the Hornady FPBs, but I think the Thor is going to be a better fit in my barrel. And because it is all copper and therefore longer at the same weight, I think it will have a slightly better BC. Since it is one piece of metal, I also think it will hold together better than any of the jacketed lead bullets. Looking forward to getting some shooting practice.
