    Perfect depth.

    I thought you had the solid cast posts rather than the bent sheet metal ones....
    ......be careful with post hammer, it could bend the whole post.

    Not sure how those little tabs work, I've only used the cast posts that have separate wire clips to hold fencing on post.

    I don't think it maters of fencing goes above post a bit.

    No, it doesn't really matter if the wire is a bit higher than the post.
    Those tabs are meant to support the wire; tapped over to secure it in place.
    Like you, I was thinking in terms of the heavy duty cast posts, as well. That's why I asked if this is intended to be permanent.

    I think what you have are called Uposts maybe?
    Looking for info on how those tabs work.
