Re: Objective way to level crosshair
If you havnt tried it, you might be suprised. With 100 click and no side drift, I would say there is under 1 degree of cant. It takes 1 or more to notice.
The string method is nice, but you still need to make sure the rifle itself is level before leveling the scope. The only logical way to do that is...a level. If your level is not true and you use the string method, your scope is not level. If you use a level on the rifle and the same level on the scope, it does not matter if the level is true or not as long as the bubble used on the rifle is in the exact same position as when used on the scope. Then you know that the scope is 90 degrees with the rifle. From there, if you dont use and ACD, you are wasting your time anyway.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
