Got a couple....... need a couple more, I get tired of switching them around to whichever rifle I want to shoot next.

You don't need a level. Been shooting long range out to 1200yds since 1992 and have absolutely no problem shooting a moa target out to 1200yds without ever checking any kind of level. I can get hit after hit from shooting off of a pack and never have even thought of a stupid level. I practice long range marksmanship taught from my time in the Marines and see this level crap is a joke. As long as you are not shooting sideways like a gangbanger holding up the quick shop you aren't going to have a problem.

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

because my long range hunting rifle and target rifle are one and the same, i do use the level.

center mass shots on big game may not be as precise of a shot as say, trying to hit a 10x at several hundred yard ranges. on paper the level comes more into play than on game due to trying to get every point you can.

now i'm not implying that on game that every effort to make an ethical precise shot should not be employed, it's just that the vital area of say a whitetail at 600 yards is much bigger (8" perhaps larger depending on how you look at it) than most competition bull's eyes.

Couldn't vote in the poll it needs another option 4) No...

I do not shoot big game beyond 500 yards so No I do not want or need a level...

Actually it needs 5 options. 5th one being a level is a gimic unless you shoot 1000yd benchrest; and even then it is kind of stupid and not at all needed if you simply focus on your reticle.

A hunting load in a 30-06 zeroed at 100 yards, when canted 12 may shoot 2 feet to the right at 600 yards and about 9 feet at 1000 yards.Canting is a reality that many choose to ignore, which is perfectly alright!
