6/3...600m and 300m. The bullet path is the same POI at those distances. Large aperture is for > 200m. Small aperture is for < 200m.

Only use the large aperture for night shooting... when you can't find your target very well (low light conditions).

The way it's trained in Army BRM is the large aperture is for close range engagements - it's fast to acquire the front sight, though not precise. The smaller aperture is ideal for precision engagements as it better isolates the front AND it's visually easier to naturally center the top of the front sight into the center of the ring. Regardless, before moving onto RDS optics in the early 90s, myself and just about everyone I know stuck with the small aperture ring. The large ring is just too large to accurately center the front sight.
