If you were to shoot a target directly above you, (90 degrees) the corrected angle says you shoot it as a zero yards which is obviously incorrect your hold off according to that would be scope height, in a 2 inch scope height set-up that says you should aim 2 inches bellow

Since the scope is pointing down towards the barrel the further the target is above you the worse that angle correction is! 10 to 15 yards above you and you should be aiming pretty much dead-on and not 2 inches bellow! And if the target where say 40/50 yards above you, by aiming 2 inches bellow as suggested in the example above you'd miss the target by several inches
