cheek pieces and scope levels

How important are these? When dealing with cheek pieces, should I go with the hard plastic style which require me to drill through my stock or just the velcro cheek pieces, like the ones made by Triad Tactical?

Scope levels..how important are they?

    I went with one from Triad and it provides me with a very solid cheek weld

    Plus 1 on the Triad I was a little leary about ordering one of these, I now have a second one on order.

    Whatever cheek piece you use I recommend a hard and super secure as opposed to anything Velcroed on.
    The scope level or anti-cant devise is critical at distance as your scope adjustments are assuming your scope is directly above the bore and depending on gravity to intercept poa and poi at a given drop.
    So if your canted you could be adjusting up and left or up and right instead of just up. This minor discrepancy is compounded when you start dialing for distance and the more adjustment you put on the scope the farther away from the center line you will be.

    Use a stock pack like triad offers. Gives you means to adjust to your fit.
