Leveling my action opinions

So here's how I'm leveling my actions, off the bolt raceways. what do you think? I know there is some opinions on whether or not actions must be level, not trying to start a debate.

    I can dig it

    I have a small Starrett level like that myself. I'd say you're doing just fine.

    Well fact is I'm thinking of selling some, not sure how much is too much $ wise. They are somewhat expensive to have them machined. So they are guaranteed square.

    They'll be close to $50 shipped. May come in slightly under but that's a pretty good estimate. Individually machined, in the USA.

    But it seems to be the most trusted place to level the action. The level-level-level is clumsy to use and I never trust that the action portion is square.

    They're machined on 4 sides to ensure flat surface, then you just use your most trusted scope level. It's heavy bar stock to so it sits nicely against the raceways. So far it works in a savage 7mm, rem 280, win model 70 25-06, rem 7mm and above. I don't know if the lug dimensions change with smaller calibers, I don't imagine they do. I'll try it in a rem 220 swift soon. I imagine if fits it should fit most. Don't have a ruger to throw it in yet.

    If anyone is seriously interested, I'll get a head count and have some made.

    I saw Mike Davidson on Long Range Pursuit using a piece of bar stock, so I had my cousin machine one for my 7 mag. Works great!
