Ok a novice question I know but what is the difference when shooting with a traditional front sight that's "wings" flare out and with many of the ones I see which create a circle around the front sight post. ( I am aware that my terminology may be way off lol, but I'm learning)

I think it's just style.
I think those "wings" / "circles" are there just to protect the front post when you drop or bang your rifle up against something.

There are circular and diamond shaped front sight guards that index with the rear peep sight allowing you to center the front sight a bit more easily. They take a little getting used, but I personally think they are more effective.

Examples include Diamondhead sights and H&K style sights.
