Re: Hitting right at long range ?
[ QUOTE ]
As little as a 3 degree tilt will throw your shot 1/2 moa per 100 yd. It doesn't sound like much until you consider that it equates to about 18 inches at 600yd.
[/ QUOTE ]Horizontal bullet displacement caused by cant is equal to the sine of the cant angle multiplied by the bullet's drop at the target. For a 600 yard target with a 18 inch horizontal error from a 3 degree cant angle, bullet drop has to be about 344 inches. A .30-06 shooting a 180-gr. bullet has a drop at 600 yards of about 130 inches; a 3 degree cant moves its impact about 7 inches sideways.
