I voted for some other distance.

My hunting rifles are generally sighted in for maximum point blank range. Roughly 2 inches high at 100 yrds depending on the trajectory of the cartridge. This means out to your maximum point blank range you'll be either a few inches high or a few inches low. Not enough to matter on anything bigger then a coyote.

My long range rifles are generally sighted in for 200 yards and I use either a BDC or mil dot for compensation. I generally don't shoot over 500 yards so I don't spin dials much.

My SKS is sightd in for 200 yards is only a hair low at 25 yards and is 3.5 high at 100.

The only time I would sight in for 25 yards is if I was never going to shoot over that distance.
