Once ste you do not change the scope settings at all during a HFT round, I have only been shooting HFT for about 9 months but spent a lot of time sifting through advice since then, I have the TAC30 also pretty sure they are true mildot at 10x.

Generally people shooting HFT .177 seem to zero between 25 & 30 yards (people I have spoken to that hunt with the same setup seem to zero at 35), 27 is a popular distance I zero at 30 myself it makes aiming fairly flat between around 15 and 33 yards, under and over thease distances I have some hold over, theoretically at around 20-25 yards I should have a little hold under but they go in fine so I just aim for the middle and hope . make sure your parallax is set to your shooting distance when you Zero mine is set to 25 yards on the scope parralaxed marker this gives me a good compromise of scope blur at the shorter and longer distances, seen a couple of scope HFT set up guides will try to find the links, if you search HFT Novice to Ninja you may see them.
