To set at an angle or to pitch to one side. It is most commonly used to describe a situation where the shooter is positioned on a slope and the rifle is not held vertically true or straight up an down. In other words, if you look through the riflescope, the horizontal crosswire is not level. Cant is not to be confused with line-of-sight (LOS), such as when you are shooting up or downhill. There are three types of cant rifle shooters must deal with: rifle cant, scope cant and reticle cant. TrackingPoint’s optics technology automatically accounts for rifle/scope title, or cant, to the left or right, and makes adjustments accordingly to ensure your shot hits the target you tag.
