I've found that yellow helps me in shooting on cloudy days on regular buff/black targets.

Mostly, for me at my level of skill, it's having glasses that let me have the front sight in focus. A fuzzy front sight and a fuzzy black ball just don't add up.

I've used ones that are between a yellow and orange and they do work well. But I only use them shooting clays. Clear for pistol or rifle shooting.

I made the mistake of wearing yellow shooting glasses at work once early on in my career. Made everything seem brighter but apparently also made it harder to differentiate between slate/white,blue/green,red/orange colors. Not gonna say what my average was on a 900pr tip and ring basic copper comms cable before I caught myself. At least I caught my mistakes and not somebody else but it was a lesson learned. Went right back to clear or just skipping glasses altogether after that.

Only neutral grey lenses will provide true color.

Any colored tint will shift colors, but that is the idea. To make certain things stand out.

Yellow and brown enhance contrast, making subtle shades standout.

Tried color mag lenses for the first time yesterday. I loved them it really magnified those orange targets.
