Default 17hmr for squirrels..

I just got a 17hmr for tree squirrel hunting. Im assuming my shots will be between 25-50 yards on average. Generally closer to 25 than 50. Should I zero the scope at 25 yards or 50? I heard the bullet is still rising at 50 so I would have to remember to aim under the squirrel... that would surely take practice!

Nah, take chest shots and they'll save you the trouble of gutting them.
