Re: Bubble level for rifle

Ric, or anyone with one of these,
If you butt a tape measure up against your scope base there, exactly how far does that level stick out from it?

Brent,
I have the same level on my 300 RUM and it sticks out about 1.156", about .216" less than the side focus knob on my NF NXS.

Re: Bubble level for rifle

Yes Brent, 1 minute on a clock face is 6 degrees, and yes, I think of that as a mile.

Yesterday, indicating a part with flats on it in an index head on the mill with the 3 jaw chuck at a crazy angle, I eyeballed the part (with no reference to anything square or plumb) and then put the "Starret exact angle finder" on it to find it off, "Minutes of angle".

Nope, I can't see the point, even if you double the error by saying plus or minus.

With no point of reference, in the last relay of the day, I shot a group 1.600 wide last year at 1000 yds. I guess ,I don't can't the gun much...

Re: Bubble level for rifle

I think you may have converted me from my scopelevels---they get caught more hanging off the top of the scope than this will--Ric and Dave--stop spending my money!!! [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Bubble level for rifle

Thanks Wayne. I guess that big knob would protect it some. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] In the way when you're carrying it at all? I thought the NXS knob would be, but it's not noticable.

Phil,
You "can't" get away with that forever! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Nice shooting!!

Seriously, they help out super well in the odd situations and are worth their weight in gold. Not necessary for the average hunter by a long shot, but no gimmick to us LRH's.

I noticed the bubble level "inside" my dad's Springfield Armory scope was not level with his turrets last time at the range... Tell me the effect from that mess!

Re: Bubble level for rifle

Wayne is right on.. and the level only sticks out about 1/2" or less from the Badger nut that tightens the ring to the base!..

Re: Bubble level for rifle

Brent,
I don't even notice it at all.
Speaking about turrets being level, I put a level on the top of my NF NXS turret and while the turret was level the reticle was not, I also wonder what that means at longrange.
