I don't understand the question.
Are you saying you can hold a zero to 25 yds, but after you move back the zero drifts in some way?
What happens if you bring the target back to 25 yds? Does the problem go away?

The day filter is really wonky for some reason. Sight in and shoot at night and mine is spot on, though I only have it on a 10/22.
