To which grind level should I set my Rocky in order to grind for french press?

I use 25 from my zero point. I don't claim that this is necessarily the perfect setting though, just a decent place to start. I tried a much finer grind once but, for me, it seemed to give a harsher flavour.
See :


Grinders : Macap MXK conical for espresso, Mahlkoenig Vario for Chemex, Macap MC6 (spare when our office was closed) for cafetiere, Zassenhaus Knee Mill for cafetiere when working away from home.
La Spaziale Vivaldi S1 espresso machine. HotTop KN8828P roaster. Chemex manual drip for most brewed coffee plus cafetieres and eSantos.
