Why soinently......
It can make a difference. If the bead is supposed to be held dead center and you are using a 6-oclock hold then the rifle will shoot low.

Get out of the indoor range and extend the target's range, at 25 yards the heavy slug is likely still climbing and has not reached its peak in the trajectory curve. My 45/70 Marlin is dead on at 50 yards printing an inch or so above the 6 o'clock hold. Depending upon the bullet's weight. 1 to 2 inches high or low of the bullseye at 100 yards bench rested. Well within a 6 inch circle in the killing zone shot while free standing.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. I have a .444 Marlin that had the same problem. Go to Skinner sights. They have a good selection of different sights and explain how to get the right sight height. They ship fast and are priced reasonably.

Good luck. Let me know how it works out.

I received the lower site from Marlin but haven't installed it yet. I am most likely going to sell the Marlin. Lost interest....

It's simple to change out the sight. Not going to cost much. Do it and try shooting it again. You can always sell it.
