Will...you have to accept that with most scopes parallaxed at 25y anything 13 yards and closer are going to be out of focussed / blurred..getting worse as you get closer.
It really is a case of shooting paper at 1-2 yard increments to see where you land with your head in its "normal" position, then shooting kills at the regulation size for that distance (8-12y = 20mm) (13-25y = 15mm) and seeing what you can squeeze into the kill.
For me i can put my 8y aim point at the bottom of a 20mm kill and knock over 8,9, & 10y targets. Anything i think is 10,11, & 12y i put my 10y aim point at the bottom of the kill.
With the kill shot up this can be a problem where its difficult to define the edge of the kill, but then if you draw your head back from the scope it often clears the image up.
Mentally make a note of the bottom of kill and use that point as a reference.
Just something you will have to practice im afraid...no magic solution..just finding something that works for you.
No system is fool proof, as light / shadow can cause problems too.
Have a read through Brian Samsons articles on the site below..some great advice.
