    We use that wheeler bubble kit. It works good. In a pinch, I've just used extra magnetic levelers from Harbor freight.

    I just use bubble levels to get the scope close. I then verify level and plumb with the reticle using a known, marked crosshatch in the shop.

    I use a cheap set of bubbles like these.

    The Spuhr wedge system is the easiest and most foolproof system, but it only works with rings.

    Feeler gauges are all you need to level a scope

    The flashlight method has always served me well.

    Level the rifle, make sure that it is secure (sandbags and locking the rotation on the bipod usually does the trick.

    Shine a flashlight through the objective lense back through the scope so that the light comes out of the ocular lense.

    It will project an image of your cross hairs onto the wall behind the rifle.

    Hang a plumbob to determine if the cross hairs are level, adjust as needed.

    No matter which of the methods you use, if you are really serious about getting the scope level, you need to make sure to test it.

    Good Luck!

    The cheap Wheeler or harbor freight levels with a rifle level bubble US OPTICS , which should be on that gun. If not get that level if you plan to shoot 500 plus. You need to level your gun while shooting.

    Hope that helps.

    I use this method too. It is also a great way to check that your reticle is level within the scope.

    Absolutely, this way you KNOW that the reticle is level to the rifle, regardless of the orientation of the scope itself.

    MIL/MIL. 20 MOA if the majority of the shooting is going to be done past 500y/m with the 5.56. You don't need bubble levels... just use the feeler gauge method or even playing cards as shims to level the underside of the scope body (where its machined flat) level with the Scope mount itself.
