The actual height you want to know is the height above the muzzle of the line of sight through the scope, not the height of the scope above the centre of the barrel.
Now that is interesting Brian. Thank you.
Guess who did it wrong !!!!!!

I will return to Chairgun, following Millride, and enter the correct height. (I can plot this on AutoCAD)
And look at the opportunity to calibrate too.

Valuable info.

I've found the Calibration (in Toolbox) and done some initial experimentation. And the differences are clearly visible. I'll determine an accurate scope height, following Millride, and overwrite the saved database to see what the new results are.
