The cant base is predicated in the amount of elevation adjustment your scope has. Most scopes benefit from a cant base to artificially increase the windage adjustment, but some don't. Obviously, your don't but then you are only shooting 1000 yards......
Interesting. This cant base, is it to offset barrel twist? The reason I'm asking
is that the wind blows from a lot of directions and some times blows one way at the muzzel and half way down range another, while the target maybe something else.
I understand the base being sloped from back to front so scope can acquire more
distant targets, like 1300 yards.

I thought so, but I wouldn't want to miss out on some thing different.
