The higher the scope is mounted above the barrel, the closer the sight line gets to the downward arm of the (more or less) parabolic path of the pellet i.e. ranges above 30 yards or so. Hence the number of clicks per yard gets lower and lower, and less sensitive to error. The downside of course is that as the scope gets higher the sight line gets further from the upward arm of the pellet path (ranges 10-20m) and so you get silly numbers of clicks at close target (170 clicks at 8m on mine !!!)

With a low mount your sight path is nearest to the flat(tish) top of the pellet path and so the number of clicks/mildots in the middle ranges is minimised, and the 2 extremes (long and short) more or less equalised
