Default Scope height?

Most FT shooters have their scopes set high above the barrel for comfort and to flatten the trajectory at longer ranges.

What sort of heights do you guys think is best?

I have a deep hamster and a high set scope and find this suits me.

I own a few different guns and set then all at 8.5 inches between the bottom of the hamster and the centre line of the scope.

I recently fitted a Warren Edwards hamster to a Steyr and the fixed posts gave me 9 inches, enough to upset my shooting.

I cut the half inch off over the weekend and now my rig is stable again.
Less is more.

More or less.
