38 yards now, was 40 yards but got fed up with that, not that there is much difference to be honest. With The new 10X42 it lends itself to 38 yards zero very nicely!!! Fingers crossed.

I didn't ask for these powers !

Default Zero position

I too have my zero on 35 yards, using H&N FTT .177, and a MAP 6 set on X9, which using chairgun gives me aim points from 8.9 to 40.9 within 1 line/dot and 25 yards being my zenith and the post good for short 8 yarders.

Although I have yet to break 50, this is my first year and I am learning more, especially wind at Millride!

Changed my zero from 30 yards to 25 yards (.22).
i.e. I'm now outside rather than in the dining room!
Theory being, I'm zeroing at ambient temperature which should aid in consistency due the differences that temperature and moisture can have inside to outside.
Also I've changed in magnification from 10x to 8x, a better depth for the nearer targets without compromising the distance clarity too much.
It also has made the aimpoints quite nice on the Falcon MP reticle - 10 yards to 25 yards falls in at the half dash from zero, everything above 25 yards also falls very nice for reference on the reticule.
Just have to see how it goes!
