    Mine sighted in for zero at 20 yards is exactly 1” high at 7 yards. Does that help?

    Need more info but I'll give it a go assuming the basics. If it has a scope on it and we assume the height over bore is about 2" then your close zero would be 10 yards and your far zero would be around 50 yards. Anything inbetween would hit high at a peak of about 1.5" high at 30 yards. 10 yards is a terrible zero for that gun unless you only plan to use it at 10. I'd rezero the gun at 30 (IF you are using a scope).

    For my ‘Merican strength HW44 22 I used a maximum point blank range calculator for a 0.5 inch target, 700fps, and the pellet BC. That calculated out to an optimal near zero of 10 yards and far zero of 25 yards. I am using a red dot scope and it is pretty accurate with the Hades 22 pellets.

    I put a Vortex Strikefire red dot on mine.  I needed the flexibility of switching the color of the dot to green.  So the height above the barrel measures less than 1.4 inches; which is rather high compared to most red dot sights.

    I zeroed in the pistol for 25 yards shooting the H&N Baracuda Match pellet of 21.14 grains.  So at 11 yards is where the pellet crosses the line of sight.  From about halfway between 11 and 25 yards, the pellet only rises 3/10 of an inch.  At 30 yards, the pellet is only 6/10 inch low.

    These targets were shot at 25 yards with 30 shots in each target.

    At 50 yards, I have to aim the pistol about 6 inches high.  These soup cans were perforated with ease from the bench at 50 yards.

    These targets were shot at 10 yards.  The upper target was shot with the first 20 rounds and the bottom target with the last 20 rounds on a single charge.

    These two targets were shot at 50 feet (16.7 yards) with 40 shots on a single charge.  For the left target, my point of aim was center of the rat's head.  So you can see that the pellet, is indeed, impacting .3 inches high.  I lowered my point of impact on the right target so that the bottom edge of the 4 MOA dot was aligned with the bottom of the rat's chin.
