    I was discussing with some friends about how they align sight pin, peep, and sight ring onto their target. They answered one of two methods:

    1) Align their sight ring (usually a painted white or orange ring on face of sight, archer side) centered on same centerline/concentric with the peeps inside diameter O [/b]—– O < –peep] while placing the pin on the target.

    or

    2) Align the sight pin in the middle of their peep, while not worrying about the sight ring orientation/placement?

    What are your thoughts?

    Note: In order to do method 1) you should have a circular sight ring not a square or rectangular frame which was more common on older model sights.

    Thanks!

Number 1 on my Switchback with a 3/16 peep and 2″ hogg-it. but probably #2 on my Prestige with a HHA 5000 and target peep. Peep is not large enough to center the sight ring, but sure clears up my pin!

I align the outside of the ring with the peep but it all comes down to personal preference and which one makes you a better archer. Try both but understand if you align the peep with the outer ring you must use a larger enough peep to see the outer ring. If you center the pin in the peep the peep should be as small as possible to give you a good area to judge the center. The one thing about small peeps is if you are hunting in low light it will hinder how much you see of the animal and even in good light you wont have a large area of the animal in 20yds or less..
