    If I was going to use my naked eye then I wouldn't bother with a level.

    If you cant your rifle and scope, say to the right, as your baseline, when you zero, say at 200 yds. your bullet will be traveling from left to right in relation to your line of sight. When the bullet passes the zero point it will continue to travel and drift to the right.

    Your base line needs to reflect your scope and action aligned and plumb to the earths gravity.

    How do you align your baseline then? How exactly do you set for square with the bore?

    What level system are you using that is adjustable?

    Even if it were slightly off as long as you use that level as "level" for the rifle and square off of it when leveling your scope for initial mounting the whole rig would still perform properly.

    As long as that is your baseline for "level" the rest should work out just fine.
    Exactly! Level is level is level, doesn't matter how straight it is on the gun. I still don't see his point a out the adjustable bubble...

    I think he's talking about physically how high it sits. It does look to be a tall rail, comparatively.

    Hard to avoid with a 20 MOA rail. With that much cant you're going to have to have a high rail to keep the front of your scope from digging into the barrel unless you have a pencil barrel and/or a small objective.
