There is another way to help prevent canting without a level michaelJanuary 6 2018 at 4:19 PM

Response to Chris , are you right handed and left eye dominant?....
And it's a way without using a bubble level. If you have a properly soped rifle you can use the bottom of the vertical cross hair to intersect the middle of the breech of the stock with a simple glance, much easier than looking at a bubble mounted to the scope regardless of where it's mounted. The eye has A natural ability to center things. A perfect scope in my books would be a mid to high quality optics with a bubble level located inside and at the bottom of the ocular lenses for shooting at long distances thus eliminating Th e need of taking eye off reticle. Problem is I have never seen my dream scope, but one day, fingers crossed.
Just this morning was using this method on a .20 R9 shooting pellet tins at 132 yards with great results. I also find this method works exceptionally well when shooting from a steep side hill incline when it's easy to loose perspective of the cross hair to the terrain.
I hope I have made sense of my ramblings. Cheers
