Use the smallest aperture possible that brings the target and carrier into better clarity. On sunny days I use a .038", cloudy .040-.042. You'll know it's too small when you look through the hole and things aren't as crisp as they should be. Focus on the front sight post, and most people will tell you to use a 6 o clock hold, (pumpkin on a post). I was using a 12-o clock hold when I started and had the same issue with vertical dispersion. Switching to 6 o clock netted me a few more points, but i still suck. ;) It's one of the hardest disciplines to learn IMO.
PS get a good upper with dual pillar rear sights, a float tube (imperative), and removable hooded rear aperture. WOA makes a good one that's reasonable, also a trigger will be worth it's weight in gold. I run a Geissele.
PS, lights go up sights go up, remember that if you're shooting on a day with fast moving clouds. Also, I'm sure you're no stranger to the nerdy anschutz blinder hats, those help too regarding eye strain.
