Yes, exactly....

Besides if you are shooting with a cant, you simply adjust for it.
In other words, as long as your cant is consistent, you can simply use your zero to adjust for it.
Once you've put on your correct zero at 600yds, cant or not, your wind call will be the deciding factor....

The problem with cant of the scope is, if you zero for 200, and then dial up for 600, you will be off to one side or the other.

Yes, you can develop a zero for 600 that is X clicks up, and Y clicks left or right, but adds complexity to your shooting.

Only if the cant is different from one position to another.

As far as my zeros, I put blue painters tape on the side of my stock.
So it wasn't anymore complex to write: "600: +25 +2R" as it was "600: +25 -1L"....

Once you have your zero at whatever range the affect of cant is minimal, compared to other factors, unless the cant is migrating and ALOT.
At 600 prone, you'd REALLY have to work hard to get that...

So then, what is the functional difference between a bubble level and a lens reducer/ drilled scope cap? Both are used to align the sight to the target. One for cant and the other for parallax. Neither of which are specifically allowed by service rifle rules.
