There appears to be a bug in RSI's cant
calulations. In both of these displayed
cases the sight height matches (closely as
not all decimal places are displayed) the
100 yard "drop" value.
I believe they've somehow linked the 100
yard drop value and the sight height to
the "start" value for the cant error
calculation, an error. Sight height
contributes to cant error, it does not
deminish the error.
Here's a screen that shows something is
Cant is 90 degrees, as can be read from
the data on the image. This is for
trajectory data similar to a "standard"
308 Win trajectory. Notice that the
deflection values are in error, much too
This screen shot show data for a
trajectory similar to a 300 Win mag.
Notice the deflection error for a 90
degree cant is Zero -0- at 100 yards, an
"I've been called much worse"
Yeah, me too. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

For any budding "rocket scientist" types.
80.66 - 78.65 = 2.01.
2.01 <> 1.75
