Only then do I bolt a level to the action checking it agrees with the one resting on the action. I then use a plumb line to level the scope up. This is all done while the gun is in a rest.

I've found the sportsmatch ones which screw directly into the mount more reliable.

Not seen those ones Rob, will have to look out for one, I seem to have all the other sportsmatch bubbles in my collection
In life you should not persue goals that are easily achieved, develop an instinct for what can be only just achieved through your greatest efforts.
