You need to have the scope itself directly over the bore line, or you can't accurately adjust windage or use horizontal holdovers.

Hitting a chest size target with a red dot at 200yds is easy with some practice, but it's a LOT easier with magnification. You definitely need a 2MOA dot to do it, though. Anything larger gets difficult.
Is that right? So I can have a scope AND a red dot offset? Seems like a win win no?....or am I missing something?
