I can't think of a better place to be using a level. Out on the flats where you can see a 1000 yards and better in most directions. In the mountians your lucky to see a 1000 yds for the trees and the terrain.
A 10" x 18" Target get's to be pretty small at that distance. By the time you compute the distance, windage,bullet drop and spin, adjusted for mirage and
a check to see the shot is flat. A 2 second check of a level bubble to make sure your not canting the rifle a degree or two. Which if, you just happen
to be a couple of degrees cant.
You have missed the target.
Been there, done that.
