I use a plumb bob too, so what do you do to level the rifle while you set the scope to the plumb line?

    I like the offset scope level from 21st century shooting. Excellent features and quality for the $$. The cutout window for seeing your SF knob settings is what I really like.

    I've been playing with the Level/Level/Level from Wheeler (piece of crap BTW). I qualify the magnetized level that fits in your action rails with an expensive digital level that I keep, on a flat plane to make sure it is square before each use. I keep that level in the action rails & level (of course) while truing my reticle. I then true the Bubble level to the action rail level when the scope rings are tightened to avoid any stacked tolerances.

    BTW- Broz- PM me your addy & i'll send you that B-Square, it's just collecting dust here.

    That is a kind offer. But first consider this. Before you mount the scope install the Bsquare on your rail and check it to be true with your good level for a double check. Then use it while squaring your scope with the plum bob. Last step mount the tube mounted level and make it match the rail mounted Bsquare. Then remove the Bsquare level and keep it around in case you ever need to check reticle trueness periodically.

    This is pretty much what I do if I am installing a tube mounted level. If I am mounting a rail level I am just done sooner.

    The final step is to shoot the bottom of the plum line once, dial up 30 moa and shoot again using the same point of aim. If I did a good job the second shot will be on the plum line 31.4" above the first shot.

    Not a bad idea at all. Let me ask you this: If I shoot my plum line, won't the weight fall off?! LOLOL!

    Sorry brother, that was the first thing to come to mind.

    Yea, but only once.

    I was actually thinking about picking up some of these: (they have both mil/mil & moa/moa)

    Then you can qualify your turrets too.
