Wow! I guess we can all fire up the computer and figure out the exact amount of Cant to correct for on this Elk shot. Now where did that Big Bull go?

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

Moombaskjer,

Good, I shoot with one on my 7mm. It's part of my
shot sequence. I'm just finishing up my Marlin 223 X7VH. changed out
the synthectic (plastic) stock for a walnut wood stock. Bedded with pillars
and floating barrel.

Shot it today, with a 4 shot group of .79" @ 100 yds and a 1" group
@ 200 yds. Hornady V-Max 55 gr, pushed by 23.3 gr of H4895.

I haven't put on a level yet but it's next on the list.

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

Have them on every rifle owned. Used to use Vortex models that mounted on the scope. Now use the type that mount to the scope rail. I find that the ones that mount on the rail actually make is easier to mount the scope reticle vertical to the rifle. I reload and tweak things a lot, always working for better accuracy. I feel the levels help eliminate a possible variable when testing how a particular bullet seating depth ect. affects accuracy.

I mount my level on the rail also. Of course I check to make sure the rail
is level as well.

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

I've used one for about a year on a 6x47 Lapua, and now it annoys me that I don't have one on every one of my other guns! Call me OCD i guess...

Another factor... I've always made sure to buy bipods with a swiveling head to make leveling your rifle easier.

CB11WYO,

Since I mount my level on my sight mount rails and the mounts are level across
the barrel. I can use the level on any of my rifles with a scope.



There's nothing better than practice, practice and more practice.
