...ballistic info presented.

In particular, take a look at the "Optimum Point Blank Zero" demo.

If you click on it's "Math" section and vary the sight height parameter, you'll see exactly what Ken is talking about.

you have to "unlearn" when you pick up these airguns. According to the BFTA document there is no advantage other than comfort to raising scope height. But from that demo you provided, I'm inclined to suspect otherwise. The way that mount/ handle is constructed, I can still peep around it to see my iron sights.

on that site. I figure there must be some reason we did so poorly at the worlds. They don't have the luxury of 20FPE over there, so I think they've done a good job of tweaking in other areas.
