You think a little like me to be honest!
I find medium mounts on my AA400 better than low and I still stick to a 30 yrd zero as you hardly need to allow for distance between 18 yards and 33 yards.
Also I pack my rear mount to try and follow the trajectory, along the greatest length of its flight.(it works in my head anyway)
Why is the 35 yrd zero used mostly when you need to allow distance on most of the shots?
What am I missing please?
The only problem I get is that it is critical to know whether a target is 8 yards or 10 as its 1 mildot between.
