Re: Leveling the Scope Reticle for Long Range Rifles
Gunner69, neither the action nor gun amounts to actual shooting level.
I had my T2K setup at 7deg cant, and it was very comfortable and well shooting.
That is, the whole gun was turned under the scope elevation adjustment(which was plumb).
A bore can be indexed, they're not drilled straight, and there was a possibility that my T2K would not do as well turned. But it did, and this is not a matter of scope level.
Actions are not indexed anymore than stocks are. They're put together more or less straight only. And it doesn't matter that bags and bipods are not indexed to exactly centerline of gravity, as a free falling bullet is.
For us dialers all that matters is that the scope's elevation adjustment is plumb. We don't need plumb crosshairs, or crosshairs at all. A simple dot is sufficient.
For those who hold over, they need a plumb crosshair only.
The turrets, rings, bases, action, stock, rests? None of that matters.
