He's probably still having nightmares about it. I hope he doesn't see this. Might give him flashbacks.

been done several different ways by lots of people but this one is unusual however; 
the shooter made targets at a cant and simply canted the gun.-instead of  shooting at 100 yds and running in elevation
shot at 600 yds
groups confirms calculated amts. from JBM
confirms litz suggestion that levels should be used in shots over 300 yds.
confirms that amts of cant acceptable in scope manufactor (around 1%) do have an effect
significant amt. of correlation -- thats why all the big dogs chimed in.

An interesting test that merely bears out the fact that physics does not change, no matter who is pulling the trigger...
