Hop up isn't for adjusting your sights or point of aim. Don't even bother using a target when setting hop up, use as far a distance as you can and tweak it that way. Best is to shoot at a background of dirt or trees so you can see the BB's flightpath, then adjust for the farthest and straightest. My being a sniper, found that adjusting for the farthest/flattest trajectory wasn't always the ideal thing due to overhopping because of variable air densities, so I get the farthest/flattest I can with the hop up, then tweak it a bit under. Is much easier to aim a bit higher to get BBs on target than it is to deal with aiming under because of the BBs overhopping suddenly.
