What is best distance from eye for Aimpoint M4?

Is there a best distance from the eye for mounting an Aimpoint M4? Is farther away better?

For you personally....maybe

With a good mount it is easy to experiment

I find that I pick it up better with my AR's where it is closer to my eye rather than my AK's where it is further forward

It works well in either position

Well, right, it doesn't matter, but in my view, generally, the farther forward, the better, for quickly picking up a flash picture of the entire "landscape" of your target environment, which can help you get on target faster. Really far forward mounts like the Ultimak on an AK and a forearm mount on a AR work very well - they are super quick. But the tradeoff is having more weight-forward balance.
