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

Here is where I eat crow....

I just today spoke with a friend I met recently. I have spoken with him a few times in the past about shooting and gunsmithing and I respect his opinion (John Whidden). He did tell me it will make me a better shooter by using a small level to ensure I am holding the rifle true. He mentioned that it did help him become a long range champion shooter. I really haven't had too much trouble hitting a 10-12" plate at 1000yds in under 12mph wind however some of my misses could probably be avoided with the use of a level he told me. So I will be buying a damn level, I hate it but I will buy one and then face all my friends who I previously told them I would laugh at them for getting one, geez just wait till I show up to shoot with one.... my reputation is done at that point...

my191145, smart move, just tell your friends that in 1000 yard BR matches the difference between 1st and 2nd often comes down to a group that's 1/10" smaller....a level could have been the difference. Let them poke at ya, laugh along with them and don't give it a second thought.

Troy,

Just tell them you did not want to make fun of them and the only way
you figured you'd be able to do it would be by putting one on you rifle!

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

I would think it would be interesting to do a poll on what levels are preferred for those of you that are using them and any pros and cons that go with them. For us guys that live in the sticks, you do not get to look at most products until the brown truck comes down the road. I don't currently use them but I think that I should be, just don't want to have a half dozen sitting in my reloading room because they weren't what I expected.

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

Eaglet, I was trying to read the name on yours. I have one monted to the barrel of my NF that was on my 375 AM but figured yours would work better since its higher off the barrel and rotates more with canting. Who makes it?
