That 25 yards is actually what I did zero it at with a laser boresighter for now , and did take into consideration the popints you brought up. I'll see how it works out after a range day this Friday. Any other input from others is greatly appreciated as well.. BTW Love your Screen Name , I'm always TCB4EPI use a 25yd zero. The distance at which you zero is much less crucial with a PCC, with which most of your shooting will be inside 100yds. You just have to be aware of the height of your optic over the bore if you zero beyond 10yds and take shots within 10yds. You should be able to hit steel silhouettes at 100yds with ease regardless of zero range, just aim at the top of the head.
