Excellent. I haven't used those type of sights before. I know my brothers would shoot at 500 meters plus in the marines with open sights and be very accurate. With you being able to hit at ranges like that, I probably wouldn't use a scope either.
I still own several scoped rifles but over the years I've had scopes fail me at bad times. The iron sights never have. The last really huge elk I shot at (in front of a witness!!) I missed at 150 yards because the scope had changed zero. Not a cheap scope either, a Leupold. Not having a scope on a hunting rifle makes it much easier to carry too.
