Re: scope level anti-cant recomendations

I have this set
Wheeler Engineering Level-Level-Level Scope Crosshair Leveling Tool

I prefer to use the rifle level (it sets on your bolt race way) and plumb bob, you line up your vertical cross hair with the string on the plumb bob. Thats not always possible though, so in that case I just set the other level on the turret or turret cap ( a good torpedo level will work for that also).

Re: scope level anti-cant recomendations

I use the FlatLine Ops exclusively any more. I'm not sure how it could be considered flimsy but I can guarantee my 338RUM couldn't/didn't bother it at all.

Easier to mount & level than my Holland for sure & has been repeatable in both positions.

Go FlatLine, you won't be sorry.
