Thanks Mike

So just so we're on the same page, a 90 degree cant would be holding the gun straight sideways like the scope would be at 3:00 o'clock. Which would be 15 minutes on the clock face. So a 6 degree cant would be 1 minute on the clock face

Correct?

    Yes & 1min on a clock doesn't seem much, but it is.
    On a Tubb2K 4 things are shifted for desired cant:
    Scope rail
    Forearm
    Buttstock
    Anschutz trigger shoe

    As mentioned the scope only needs to be kept plumb over the barrel, and plumb in hold-over or adjustment.
    A ScopLevel is independent of gun cant, so it allows any configuration.
