Called "area aiming"... in 10m the target is blurred and the foresight is in focus... i have done it by accident a few times now and it does work... but it's probably an advanced technique to play with rather than a fundamental to start with.

It can be suprising though how accurate you can be with a less than perfect sight picture, indeed the paper punchers can never achieve it, and they can be accurate to the mm at 10m, and sub 1cm at 50m with ease.
