I rock the gun side to side looking down the rear action and naturaly you find when the gun is level.
I suffer from a eye condition that when the the crosshair is level the scope is rotated anit clockwise a fair bit, other shooters wouldnt be able to use my scope set ups propelry.
Unfortunately the eye is easily fooled. I used to think mine wasn't but found out to my cost it's easily tricked. If you ask the top 20 ft shots if they think a spirit level is important, I reckon you'd get 19 saying yes, and that the 20th needs one
