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.

    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...

    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]

    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!

    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!..

    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.
