Re: Scope alignment with rifle

The main thing is to keep the reticle's vertical cross-hair level with the ground...

It's nice to have the scope aligned well with the rifle, but if the scope itself is canted a bit, you can still shoot accurately--provided that the reticle is held level while you're shooting...

here's an article I did a few years back which might be helpful...
