Want to take off Rem 700 Front and Rear sight

What do I use to plug the rear and front sight holes? I've seen a bunch of flat "plug" looking things. Any suggestions?

AR's for coyotes

AR10 for mule deer
6.5-06 M700 for mule deer
338 Lapua Mag M700 for elk

I use the "plug" screws, brass,stainless,or blued depending on the rifle finish. available from brownells or midway. most have to be "fit" as not all holes are same depth. easy to do.
