Low scopes do not cause "negative clicks".

Response to Don, here is what I do and why...

For pistol and 20fpe, I tend to keep my scopes as low as possible. For 12fpe rifle, maybe a little higher. Except for some inclined/decline shots, I use only positive holdover from my zero. The same would be true if I was clicking.

"Negative clicks" are needed when you do not zero at the apex. Your zero apex will be closer when you go to lower mounts. If you neglect to establish the correct zero for the lower mounts, you will end up with "negative clicks".
