typically I rough set around 50ft in the basement to save time during setup at the field .. and then make finer adjustments and tests at the field where I can let the hop up work and set/test the ranges I'll actually be shooting at.

if the scope and the mounting is good quality/done properly and you haven't used your rifle as a bat or a falling aid(or hamper as the case may be) should only have to do it once
