I read about the smoke. I will try that.
I also read about using a #2 pencil.

Will try those two and see if it solves it.

Thank you all for the suggestions.

Have you tried tilting the sight forward a bit. It may not be best vertical. While looking thru it tilt it forward and backward to see if the picture gets better or worse. Just a thought.

I really think that is it. Followed by a poorly aligned hadley disk as the next most likely culprit.

Dang Brent... first I've heard that advice. Is that a common slam against all hadleys, moreso Kelley or you don't like any of them? Would really like to hear your thoughts. Got an MVA Soule on order now and was gonna include a Hadley this go round. I have one that came on a rifle - otherwise never splurged. Any other opinions welcome on that semi-related questions:-) I'm needing to call them this morning.

I am an equal opportunity nondiscriminating kind of guy and general hater of Hadleys, one and all. All they will do is cost you points.

Fair enough, and thanks. do you have a means of adjusting for different conditions... changing light angles, morning, afternoon... longer matches, etc., i.e., eyepieces with different size apertures.

Exactly. I have 5 eyecups all with different diameters.

Easy to bump an adjustable eyepiece and turn it slightly when you push patches during a match. One more thing I like about a Baldwin.

You might check to see if the glare is off the sight or off the barrell. Seems like the reflection might be off the barrell.

I have the exact same problem with an MVA long range with a Hadley Magnum and the factory cup. My sight is vertical but if I tip it forward out of the detent it clears. I've been thinking about installing a long tube through the sight. I was hoping someone had an easy fix. Bob

You say your sight is vertical. When it is, the hole through it is parallel to the barrel. As the sight is raised for distance the parallel line is higher and higher above the barrel. In order to center the front sight more and more of the bottom of the rear sight tube will be visible to you. Tilt the staff a bit forward so that the tube is pointing at the front sight at your medium distance sight setting and smoke the tube to cut reflections.

What plainbase said.

Staff should be perpendicular to your sight line at an intermediate range (whatever that means for you). Lock in that angle and you should be good across the course.
