Re: Dumb Scope Mount Question
Mounting the scope low also increases the "duration of coincidence" or in other words, the length of time (and length of distance) that the bullets path approximates the line of sight.
This is handy when sighting your gun in for a "point blank range". This will only matter for about 200 to 300 yards or so depending on what size target you want to hit in this manner.
If you need I can explain what point blank range is. It is a very handy way to deal with aiming at closer targets.
This whole topic also relates to what makes optical (not laser) range finders work and also what limits their accuracy as the distance they are measuring increases.

GRAVITY. It's not just a good idea. It's the LAW!
