"negative clicks" is due to a less than ideal zero distanceApril 3 2017 at 10:10 PM

Response to Don, here is what I do and why...
Using the distance the trajectory peaks with your gun/pellet combo to zero on will never result in "negative clicks" at other distances, as all ranges closer or farther will be "positive".
I always tried to arrive at a system that did NOT require more than a full revolution of the turret at the close distances, and this is normally easier to accomplish with a low scope mounting. BUT, if you want or "need" a high mount, then I normally used a different aimpoint on the reticle, such as the "fatter" point of the 30-30 reticle partway down from the midpoint for shots closer than say ... 15 yards, which avoids the dreaded "full turn off" miss many encounter.
Personally, I have always preferred "holdoff" shooting, and only "clicked" for a couple years in all the decades of FT shooting I have done. With /hunter clsss shooting, which I do nowadays, I find I prefer the scope to be mounted as low as is practical, allowing easy aimpoints on the standard mildot reticle for any distance from 10-100yds with a sub-20fpe gun.
