    A level is only an "aid" to perfection. Knowledge and skill are more important.

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

    Since I'm not a hunter, I figger if I use a level on my target when I staple it in place, it's a simple matter to keep my crosshair parallel to vertical or horizontal lines on the target. But if I was a hunter, I'd certainly use a level.
    I use a level to insure my crosshairs are lined up as perfect as possible when installing a new scope.

    Absolutely, especially when installing a scope. when installing I usually use
    three of them. One in the bore, another on the scope mount and one on the
    scope. Then I install one to stay on the scope barrel. I like the folding kind.

    If you are shooting NRA target competition in F class it's a must.

    I hunt and would not be without it, on anything over 600 yds.

    If I have a front blade sight, and align the crosshair to the vertical, do I still need one?

    Grbb,

    Hello, whether or not to have a level on your rifle depends on where you shoot this
    rifle, what distance and what your expectations are in the way of accuracy.

    If you are shooting on a nice flat range, 200 yards. You probably don't need
    a level. Check your target to see if you are grouping outside the spot. If you
    have already adjusted for twist and windage, you just might be canting your
    rifle and don't know it.
