With greater distance between the bore and the line of sight, does it not move the rifle further laterally from the line of sight at a given amount of cant?

Pretty sure this is true and the "why for" of my statement .. just the slightest cant the POI much more so shifted sideways much greater than the same cant dd with my more typical lower "hunter scope height"Either that or I'm nutz
Brother that is a great illustration, but where is height over bore taken into consideration? Also, since when do you take all of your shots at the same range you are zeroed from?It is hard for me to sit in my chair and question someone like you on that, but it definitely makes a difference. Especially in closer or our further than your PBR.And with 6" height over bore? Vs 2.5"?? That doubles the distance of poa from poi. No way that it doesn't matter. Might not be as big a deal at the range you are zeroed, but for sure it will matter at different ranges.And finally, I have fired a lot from odd and awkward positions in my life. I can tell you for a fact, if you have to shoot laying on your side, your POI changes drastically.All I am trying to say is, height over bore matters, relative to the angle of the shot. For sure it mattere outside of your PBR and matters more as the amount if cant increases.
My experience shooting .177 cal HW springers (HW95 & Beeman rebadged R9) tuned to shoot at from 12.5 to 13.5fpe is that scope height above the bore does affect the point of impact at different ranges. ...For a while now I've been using scopes with 50mm objectives so I've needed high mounts so the front bell would clear the receiver and have noticed that I have more issues hitting close targets on the FT course that I did when using medium mounts with 40mm front bell.
