The scope on my crossbow has 4 reticles. I am wondering if I should sight the first reticle in at 10 yards or 20?

If I did 10 yards the rest of the reticles would be 20/30/40. If I sighted it in at 20 yards the rest would be 30/40/50.

What do you guys do or recommend?

Thanks

I'm finding that my 20 and 30 yard zero is the same with a Barnett Quad 400. I was very surprised, but this has remained consistent.
At 40 yards it starts to drop.

I also set my first one for 20 yards. I have shot it at 10 yards and there is really no difference than shooting at 10 yards. Shot a deer once at 10 yards and bolt still hit where I was aiming.
