Good advice.

It doesn't really matter. Laser bore-sighting rarely does more than get you on paper to begin with, after which you fire at your intended zero range to fine tune. I have never felt the need for one. I start out with a small target in the middle of a BIG piece of paper, at 25 yards. One shot to see where I am hitting, make adjustments, another shot to verify I am zeroed at that range. Then, the target goes to 100 yards where, usually, I am 2-3" high and close to correct for windage. Another fine-tune adjustment, then fire to verify. On a bad day, this may take 5 or 6 shots.

Never go hunting with just a bore-sighting, or just a 25-yard zero. Always check with live fire as your actual zero at longer ranges may be 'way off.
