I think moving your zero out farther is a great option especially for a hunter. You know you can take a snap shot on a deer out to 300 yards and you'll hit. It's not accepting a know error, it's accepting a know flight path.

Of course you do, if you have a scope like that.

It makes for an easier aiming as your eye tries to center things without you even conciously thinking about it.
Also, when you shift your zero away from center, you get larger aiming errors from canting the scope than when you use a reticle-centric zero for the range you are shooting at.
You lost me here. If your saying most people prefer to aim with the center I agree.
