Re: Anti cant device

The anti cant is essential IMO, the pics above clearly illustrate the need! My consistency at longer ranges improved after putting on a Hollands anti cant.

I didn't understand them for a long time. Now they make sence to me. You use them when shooting from rough and uneven terrain. Thanks, I will start checking into them.

Re: Anti cant device

Like everyone is stating, past 500 yards you need one. As another factor it helps with your preshot routine. As I settle my nerves and go through my preshot routine, I check lcant first and prior to the last step of pulling the trigger. Gives you something to pay attention to and settle down before that trophy/buck fever ruins your shot. I have used several, like the Hollands and Vortex the best I have been running the Horus, ASLI on my go to big guns, kills two birds with one shot and I like the angle and math readings.

Re: Anti cant device

I use them,even a Bsquare $15 type works fine. I shot archery for years,with bubble, and you would use the cant for some wind hold on purpose,shooting 3-d.
