Default Technical question - Twisted Peep

I am one who centers his peep housing in my peep when I shoot. I center the whole housing....creating a "halo" effect around my housing. That's how I know I have my housing "centered".

So.....what would be the result if my peep was rotated, slightly, to the right when I was at full draw? When this was happening....I could only center the housing (and not get the halo around it).

What's your opinion of where my arrow would hit? Explain, if you don't mind.

Thanks.

Just a very simple way to eliminate any concerns you might have with your sight.

If you place a dime on the front lens of a rifle scope it will block a huge portion of your viewing area,or so you would think,because when you raise the rifle and look thru the scope the dime will not be visible to you.

Kind of like playing Darts when you have the dart in front of you and focusing on the target you dont really see the dart or pay attention to it?

Twist your peep a little before u draw back and shoot an arrow...see where it impacts...The best way is to see for yourself. As long as you can center your ring, I don't see it making a tremendous difference.

I "think" (and I could be wrong) you guys are making this more "zen" than it needs to be.

Isn't this a simple physics/geometry type question? You know......IF/THEN?

Let me tell you my "theory"....and you guys tell me if you think it holds water.

Ok....If my peep isn't fully rotating around....and is pointing a little to the left....what I'll be looking at when I come to full draw is elongated and not perfectly round. To make it perfectly round.....I have to turn my bow SLIGHTLY to the right (to compensate for the admittedly minor amount the peep is not fully rotated.

"Could" this cause me to shoot a "little" right? There's a reason I ask.
