Don't know about you guys, but I shoot much better groups when the scope is mounted such that my eye is always in the same place directly behind the scope with identical cheekwelds.
For me, that means having the centerline of the scope as close to the bore as possible, or to install a cheekpiece of the correct height to center the eye directly behind the ocular.
When you purchase a scope, you generally get exactly what you pay for.

My Winchester 94 has a scope with mounts whereas you can also use the iron sights. I have had no problems with the scope, I actually have made my furthest shot using that rifle with the scope mounted high like that.

Everyone tells me I should not be able to hit with it, but I don't see that it is making any difference whatsoever.

Default see through mounts

actually the mounts won't effect the guns capability in any manner. They do make a difference in how you aim. if you are zeroed at 100 yds. and your scope is mounted high, you will shoot high at long ranges. I have see through mounts on my Gamemaster because of the wide veriety of hunting conditions where I hunt, but if I were hunting mtn. sheep (DREAM) I would certainly want my scope close to the barrel. Either way you have to know where your gun is shooting at a given range but scoped close to the barrel, you are less likely to err. Then consider cant at long range with high sights and you could be off target considerablly.
