Leveling a scope reticle. Scope levels worth it? Riflescope. Gun optics.

Anybody keep a level on their scope?

How are you leveling your scopes? I used a couple spirit levels on my last scope.

I got a couple of plumb line levels at the hardware store and used those when mounting my last scope. Probably paid $3 for both of them.

As for using levels while shooting, I see no value added if you're shooting at reasonable hunting distances....300 or less.

I use a good flashlight shining through the scope on a wall, while the rifle is in something like a lead sled with the rifle level. This way you can see the reticle on the wall, and use a level on the wall to be sure it is level. I am pretty sure you can google this.
