Exactly thè problem with zone system testing, you aim for a target range of densities and you end up with numbers that when you are trying to print them they require magic in the darkroom.

Most enlarging papers can accomodate a negative with a DR of .8, add to that .1 for flare and .1 for printing with a diffusion source and you get a negative that will print properly in a grade #2 paper when it has a DR of 1.00

At 1.15 to 1.25 I would say you have overshot the mark.
