I've done it this way also. But its all for nothing if you dont hold the gun level when shooting.:wink: So it would seem prudent to purchase a scope level to put on when shooting in the field.The best way I found is to mount the rifle in a vise and get it good and level across the scope base. Put the scope on top of the installed bottom half of the ring and aim it at a level line drawn on a wall. Tighten accordingly. This will get it closer than a bubble level. I think it would be easy enough to adapt to bore sighting it with a laser as well.
U make that Mr. C? Really niceHere's what I use with a couple of small string levels. It may not be perfect, but it's closer than my 53 year old eyes. :biggrin:

If I ever get into shooting at much further than 200 yards I'll get a clamp-on level to mount on the scope tube. My .45-70 will soon have a spirit level in front of the front sight. Those are pretty cool! But yeah, if you don't level the gun first the rest is pointless.I've done it this way also.

It's just a couple of dollar string levels and a small piece of rod I had laying around. The rubber band holds the rod against the scope base and a couple of O rings hold the one level to the rod.U make that Mr. C? Really nice
How does it work?Here's what I use. Reticle Leveler.

Once you get it set up like in the picture you pull your eye back until you can see the reticle and horizontal lines on the reticle leveler at the same time and just line them up together.How does it work?
