Default Offset mini red dot

Do any of you run a standard riflescope on top of and a mini red dot offset? I was wondering how you like it? Sighting issues? What sight did you go with?

At the present we are experimenting with an LE precision marksman rifle platform where a standard sniper scope is used on top as normal. But will be using an EOTech MRDS Red Dot on a side mount for close contact engagement! The side mount sight is not a new application. Some competition shooters use it as well. In the past most had used Iron Sights on the offset mount. Bottom line, a red dot would improve the application. In addition it is quicker acquisition being a Red Dot.
