Leviawan,

I try to do the very best, I am capable of, for any given day.
Some days are better than others. Those days take a little
extra effort and it is almost always worth the effort.

What ever you do remember to Practice, Practice and Practice.

Re: Do you use a scope level to keep your rifle level?

I'm out in the flats here in ND and I can see the horizon, so I don't see the need for another thing slowing me down behind the trigger. If I were pitching lead in the mountains, I'd think about it, but on the flats, shooting offhand, it's simply a nuisance.

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.

I think Palma shooters at 1000 yards use open sights don't they? They typically use lower bc lighter bullets for the challenge of the wind too. All this seems kind of odd but they really learn how to shoot which includes squaring the rifle to the the target and reading the wind. I'm not yet sold on extra gear, but maybe down the road.

Each of the shooting disciplines has it's own set of match rules. You can find
equipment lists on the internet. Some of the front sights have lens and
incorporate a level as well.

Some rifle buts are adjustable. If your comfort zone is to shoot the rifle
with a cant to it, you can adjust the but for comfort and still maintain
a verticle line with the target.
