This scope/rifle leveling thang
I have often pondered the best way to level the rifle during scope mounting. In the mystery to me thread some very good techniques were mentioned.
I was wondering, I know potentionly dangerous, if a action leveling device made to use the bolt lug raceways would not be a good tool.
If you had a piece of steel or aluminum approx the thickness and width of the bolt lugs long enough to reach the front action screw with a T shape on the end sticking out of the action to put your degree wheel or high quality level on and maybe a front action screw long enough to go through the action and hold it tight to the top of the raceway, would this be a good system to level the action.
I would like to hear the pros and cons of this Idea for I have often thought of building one. It would be very simple to make with some scrap plate and a torch,plasma arc, or even a sawzall. Let me know what yall think. Thank you:308 And a Merry Christmas to all!
