Re: Scope Level Placement

I will just have to mount it, and see where I like or don't like it. I would agree that probably having it too close to the turrets may cause problems a little bit.

I bought a Sinclair. I know, it's a cheaper version. It has some offset. I will have to see if it is enough to be able to see or not. I have never used an anti cant device before, but I have never shot long range on a consistent basis before either. I am curious to see how much my groups will tighten by having some sort of reference to gun position.

Re: Scope Level Placement

Mounted my level today and all is well. I was probably just overthinking it a little

Re: Scope Level Placement

Where did you end up putting it? Front, rear or standing on it's ear?
