I am loosing 30% of my worry free shooting by having to dial up...or 56%...depending on how you like to do math (225 x 156% = 351.)
Since this is LRH and not Tactical shooter something or other, I don't need to be within 1/2 inch at XXX yards.....just be in the "boiler room"...which is about 8 inches on deer. It's also called Maximum point blank range...but I am pretty sure you knew about that.
Everything I own has a 300 yard zero, from my varment rigs to my big game guns. OK, I admit, my rimfires are not zeroed at 300
Now, when I attend some sort of tactical match i rezero to 100...THAT makes total sence.
