When is the optimal time in a macrocycle to place a mini-cut?

Question is at the end, regarding programming reps and intensities.
But first, assuming…
— 15 to 25 reps total volume per lift per session is in the strength zone because it provides optimal stimulus (fatigue versus fitness), between the minimum effective dose and the maximum recoverable volume.
— Sub maximal training, from 70 to 85% 1RM, over time is the most effective way to build a foundation of strength gains for the same reasons as the total volume range above. Of course a peaking block will build strength fast but without a base it may be less safe and harder to maintain.
— Four to six reps per set is the accepted optimal method (MED vs MRV)…

Is the optimal rep range four to six reps per set because of relative intensity? At four to six reps in the 70 to 85% 1RM range the relative intensity will span about 80 to 90%, which sounds like a great range to work.

In question below, disregard MED and MRV, stick with fitness versus fatigue. We can all do more than this volume and recover…
