I do the same. It's not perfect I'm sure, but works great for me at the outdoor range I have access to.

I had the displeasure of running a zero range for my battalion where it was the first time everybody had an M68 (Aimpoint CompM2) on their M4s. This being the Special Troops Battalion (Engineers, MI, Signal, MP) nobody had boresighted the damned things. Nightmare is a soft word for how miserable that week was. It being the middle of August in the Fort Campbell heat didn't do anything to improve the mood, or the results of the shooters. That was before you get into any nuances of why 25 yards (or meters in this case) isn't optimal for red dot zeroing.
