It's not messed up.

In order to get a 500 yard zero you would be nearly 26 inches high at 25 yards, and it's dropping like a rock (which is actually exactly the same as dropping like a bullet) at 500 yards. It loses almost 36 inches in the last 25 yards.

The lead is based on a moving target, can't remember how fast. I ignored that part, should have changed it to zero. Anyway, doesn't have much bearing on this case.
