Default Sighting in NcStar D4B

I recently picked up a NcStar D4B Red Dot Sight to switch from rifle to rifle. I've always used scopes and never used a red dot. I was using it for the first time yesterday and sighting it in. I sighted it perfectly and moved my target back about another 25 yards. It was completely ineffective. It was really low... Is this supposed to happen or is there something I should be doing differently or what?

how high off the barrel is your scope and what range are you sighting in?? pics of the gun and scope would help.

Default Red/Green Dot scope

I have a fairly cheap R/G dot scope mounted on my GSG AK 47 22 cal.....It is mounted about 3 1/2 in above the bore........Groups reasonably well at 25 yards.......Can any one suggest a zeroing range that will allow shooting reasonably accurate at various ranges without having to re zero the scope each time?......I have discovered that I don't really like the Dot type scopes and will probably get a reticle type scope if the Dot won't work well at mixed ranges.
