Until I find a "better mousetrap", we're kind of stuck with the bubble level. Some are much better than others. I've seen tests eyeballing vs a level. You'd be surprised how far off the eye is! I'm sticking with the bubble in a quality housing, no 3-D printed or Amazon crap.

have you looked at accuracy first? Ceramic ball instead of a bubble. Stays the same size at all temps. Been doing a lot of research after a member here brought up the issues with bubble levels. Also seen some electronic levels that look nice

I can’t post links yet, but Sent It makes a digital level that mounts to your scope, base, or rings.

I have used the compact Tubb anti-cant level on 5 or 6 rifles. I mount it behind the turret, but free of the rear ring. I also reverse it to put the bubble below the tube, opposite the bolt, instead of sticking it up to get bumped. I have no trouble seeing the bubble and it is well protected.

That said, I'm now using Darrell Holland's anti-cant. Old eyes mean bigger bubble.
