    When leveling a scope I've always found it useful to hang a plumb bob at fifty yards and then match the vertical line in the reticle to the string. It's easy and gets the job done and I have never had any issues. You just have to be careful not to move the scope as you tighten down the mount screws. Do it a couple times and it's no biggie. FWIW.

    A plumb line that is centered while looking through the barrel and plumb with the reticle is the only true way (that and the flashlight through the ocular).

    Making the turret housing and mount parallel is just that.

    Not saying it doesn't work, but it's a slipshod way of doing things IMO.

    Look what came in the mail today! I took a photo of it next to my Strike Eagle. I still need to buy a mount, but first impressions are that the glass is very clean and the 1x feels more like .5x. The eyebox is great and looking through the scope, you don't see the knobs on the outside. Best of all it's aimpoint bright when it's on. I'll test it out on my work gun next time we hit the range, but until then, I plan on giving it a good run. I've been meaning to revamp our LVPO course that we teach for open enrollment and this will definitely get me back on track.

    If reticle is not squared to turrets and scope body, that means reticle will not be tracking properly with windage and elevation adjustments. While there can be a point that in some scopes nobody touch those after initial zeroing, I still believe that such scope is better to be sent back on warranty than mounted canted to straighten reticle position.

    In my case I first mount scope squared to rifle then I check if reticle is also squared. Unless reticle is so canted in first place that I can notice it before mounting.
