hold LB to aim then hit RT to fire them

Also for anyone that doesn't know, to use heavy shot, look to the side of your ship and press RT without holding LT. For some reason the game didn't tell me how to do that!

yeah agreed... BUT i think i get why now.

heavy shot is short range and holding LT is targetting for long range

LB is the bincoluar thingy which is long range scanning, and mortars are long range..

still annoyed but now i know WHY which is of big importance for me.

RB is for the scope, not LB.

The spyglass (aka binocular thing) is RB, not LB, though both zoom in so that could be why you're getting mixed up. Mortars have a far greater range than cannons so are often a good opening shot before you're in range of cannons.
