    Wheeler's Level, Level, Level???seems there's mixed feelings on the Cabela's product review, & am wondering if anyone here on the ODD, has used them?

    If I was mounting scopes for a living I would have one, but for the 10 or so a year I do I just use a torpedo level and a plumb corner.

    I have one and use it quite often.

    If you use it right, it really helps get your scope mounted right with little effort. If you don't mind spending for it, they have a kit that has the Level and their AWESOME torque wrench set. Best set up for mounting a scope ever.

    I have never used one, I just use a carpenters level. Lots of folks make a big deal out of getting the cross hairs dead level. In reality it is not that but a deal. What is important however, is holding the rifle with the same rotation for all shots.

    Default Wheeler level

    I have one and am not too satisfied with the quality. For example, the plain flat level doesn't read the same when you turn it 180 degrees. I was able to "file" the plastic base to make it the same. It works OK if you have a flat on the receiver someplace for the magnetic portion to hang onto. I have also used a 1-2-3 block on the side of some receivers with the magnetic level. Mark

    Levels are for hanging cupboards and pictures. I hold my gun in a normal shooting position and look through the scope and if the vertical crosshair lines up on a fixed object that I know is plumb (usually the door casing on the neighbors garage....after all I hung that door) and then I tighten the screws!

    I'm to old for all these new hairbrain gadgets!

    Gee, I thought that I was the only guy left on the planet that did it that way. I guess that if I were shooting at extreme ranges I might get a little more careful about it but for all the hunting and shooting I've done, it has worked just fine.

    Default Pulled one down...

    and used it a few times. Feller wanted to buy the thing, and I was just really happy to sell it to him. It's been six months and haven't seen fit to reorder.

    I do like elmer said but level it to the horizon.

    WHAT? No garage doors in Kotlik?

    I did some checkin, and it looks like the horizon is flat enough.

    I have one I bought last year. It really does help when you are tightening down the screws on scope rings especially the Weavers that have the screws on one side because they cant the scope as you are tightening them and the rings start to snug down.
    Now what ?
