What is the best Anti Cant level?

I want to put an anti canting level on my scope. Does any body have an opinion as to one vs another? The gun will be used for hunting. I have a nightforce 5.5x22 np2

IMO, basically all the same. Some are fancier but they all perform the same function. I get mine from the Long Range Store on this website, the Darrel Holland flavor.

Here are two that I use. The small one attached to the Picatinny rail was used to level the action. Then I used a Vortex side level on the scope to match the first one. This way I can look through the scope with one eye and watch the level with the other eye. I later removed the lower B-Square level.

Len's is cheaper. Besides it's better to support the psrson that brings you this forum whenever possible.

Re: What is the best Anti Cant level?

Thanks for the input. When I first got into long range and bought my Nightforce optic, I had no idea everything that goes into making a long range shot consistent. The guy that sold me my scope mounted it. He used Leopold removable rings. I like the rings but I had no idea the importance of the scope level. When he mounted the scope he didnt do a very good job leveling the scope. I placed a level on the picatiny rail and the level on the top of the scope was way off. I was having to hold about two feet left to hit the center bulls eye at 1000 yrds. I looking forward to getting the the range to see if my adjustments are on and consistent.
