You're not the only one. The only reasons IMO/IME to mount a scope way up in the stratosphere like some people on here have done are: 1. Because the scope has a ginormous objective bell that wouldn't otherwise clear the rifle. 2. Because you have some kind of weird personal preference to the contrary.
Mounting lower to the bore is not just more comfortable; it is demonstrably better for precision shooting in general. Height-over-bore should be as low as you can stand it.
