So everyone has been indoctrinated into the idea you need a level to succeed. Especially when shooting inside a 1000 yards on relatively flat surfaces, especially resting the rifle on a sand bag where gravity actually gives you a hand.
So we were playing around at the range yesterday, we were talking wind, and angles, etc, so I decided to purposely Cant my rifle and film it.
I have seen other videos of CANT and how necessary it is, and sure if you aim in the exact same place as not canting the rifle you can miss, especially If you need to manage wind. But if you know the rifle is canted and you slide the aiming point slightly, especially when wind is a factor, the results should be the same, you hit the plate.
I am not saying yes, can't the rifle, I am saying the idea you NEED A LEVEL is a lie, and I personally believe people are being lead like a horse with them. Everyone has to "Glance" at the level and that action is moving people to "lean" left for lack of a better word.
I want to give a note on the wind, as we'll have a video showing, the constant changes and how people are more inclined to reduce the complex wind problems to a single solution yet they will hyper focus on their levels because they are product one can buy.
In my mind it's an idiot light, telling me I have problem but doing nothing to fix it.
