A lot of what would help, is really to go shooting. Learn how your eyes see through the sights and what adjustments you have to make on said sights to dope the yardage and wind.

Experiment with it and set distance goals for yourself.

Marines, recruits included MUST qualify with iron sights upto 500 yards, i have shot accuratly out to 700.

asa primary marksmanship instructor for the Corps i can tell you that you REALLY do need to get out there and throw some rounds down range.
I am pretty confused as to what you are confused about or not understanding with the AR's sights. care to explain???

Its possible with large targets. People shoot high power competition out to 600 yards with irons. But you need a target big enough for you to see. There are also custom smaller diameter rear sights and finer front sights you can buy. But personally I prefer optics on my AR's.
