I checked this method and it appears I am perfect. I am feeling good about my scope now. Can't wait to shoot some groups now.
That is a good beginning. But does not insure the reticle is mounted inside the scope tube plumb. Nor does it assure that went you dial in for a shot that the reticle will track true to plumb either. I still feel the best method is to true the reticle to a plumb line at 50 to 80 yards while keeping your rifles level leveled up. Then the shoot up the line test while dialing up 30 moa is the final step.
Just come in from doing another one myself.
