Cant angle calculation

Anyone got a spread sheet or know of a program to give bullet deflection at distance due to variations in cant angles?

I am playing with my own calculations using scope height, sight in distance, line of bore, line of sight, bullet drop, sine angle, and target distance etc,etc. I am getting good results, but it is a long winded way of obtaining a single target resolution.

What I would realy like is a spread sheet with places where I could input all the variables. Unfortunately although I am not to bad at math, I suck at spread sheets design.

Re: Cant angle calculation

Nightforce ballistic program has a incline angle drop table function that can be loaded on a spread sheet and make a drop chart. Very quick and easy.

Thanks Trueblue, but I am after "cant" angle deflection rather than incline angle adjustment.

Re: Cant angle calculation

the program built by Patagonia Ballistics has a Cant function in it. I have not used the cant function yet, but the rest of the program is excellent.

Re: Cant angle calculation

Topshot,

Why would you be going nuts over cant numbers ?? If you have a anti cant device and S series Harris its about all you can do mechanically to avoid it.

Check the bubble's level and let it fly !

PM'em you with 7mm FATSO link

Re: Cant angle calculation

Sorry, misread the post. Like DUH, I too am wondering why you would be concerned about cant angle if you are using an anti cant devise on your scope. Just curious.
