Re: US OPTICS ANTI CANT DEVICE

I could be wrong, but I was told that G. David Tubbs Always shoots in all competitions, with his rifle Canted.
[/ QUOTE ]Probably half the competitive bullseye shooters cant their rifles to some degree. It helps trigger control by putting your trigger hand in a more natural, unstressed position. For scopes, they'll level the reticule on the canted rifle. For aperture sights, the front sight will have a spirit level in the sight mounted on a barrel band that's rotated to level with the rifle canted.
Note that these folks have both an elevation and windage zero for each range because the line of sight is not directly over the bore. Not a problem when targets range from 50 to 1000 yards.
But hunters shouldn't cant their rifles but instead level the scope on them and change elevation (hold or sight setting) for different ranges. It's much easier this way. A few folks have had a small bubble level put in their scopes at the reticule plane so they're visible at all magnifications. Inside the scope, they're well protected from whatever goes on outside the scope. They're a tiny bit out of focus but do the job quite well. Check with a custom reticule outfit to see if they'll put one in for you. If I wanted a scope level indicator, this is where I'd put it.
