rifle Anti-cant/angle indication

Hey all. Im wondering what is the most cost effective way to level and tell angle on a LR rifle with some degree of accuracy and speed. I have been looking at the Defensive Edge AC/ACI mount but think it may be a bit more than I wanna spend. I will get it if it is the hands down best system out there, but i would like to know if there are more options. so the requirments are
-scope mounted on 30mm tube (I dont have a picitinny)
-somewhat small

I saw the U.S optics C-level on OpticsPlanet for $70, but that leaves the angle to be found. Shawns model sell for about $225 with the bottom ring. I have seen cheaper ones from Midway, but cant seem to find them now. If I go with just a C-Level is there another way to tell angle that is FAST. Right now I use the protractor/string/paper-clip combo and it works, but not very well. i think that I'm gonna land up getting the DE one, but If anyone has anything that works for them let me know. Thanks!

Have a look at the Horus Vision Unit.

If your laser rangefinder gives you the angle why would you need an indicator on your rifle?

joseph, I havent found a decent rangefinder that will give me my angle. I want something that will range beyond 500 yards (bushnell,leupold) so I go with Lecia. Also thats what I can borrow so its what I use.
