Reply to "AR Sight Offset / canted weapon question"

For 90 degree cants - We typically held higher on a pectoral or lower on a shoulder to obtain a center mass hit when using barricades / cover and concealment and engaging enemy from 100-200 meters.

100 Meters = Upper Pectoral Hold

125-200 = Shoulder Hold

For a 45 degree cant, effects are halved.

For targets beyond 150-200 meters we typically assumed a better shooting position.

We didn't bother with any cant less than that as effects were negligible at the above ranges.

This is easily proven on a flat square range shooting groups with different cants and distances.

Mike Pannone's M4 Handbook probably has something about this as well, I'll dig through my copy when I get home.
