Thread: Cheap Chinese scope levels

  1. #1

    Cheap Chinese scope levels

    Has anyone any experience with these? I'll be(hopefully)shooting out to 450yds and for under a fiver one of these may be useful. What is the general opinion on scope levels for mid range shooting and are the cheap levels any good? Thanks.

    I use an eBay cheap one I tested it against a good level and it's Bob on perfect calibration

    so I don't see any reason why yours wouldn't be Bob on but just check it against a good level for peace of mind

    Not sure you need to worry that close in but as long as it is actually level then no worries

    As long as it is reproducable it does not matter, point is you need to hold rifle in same place each time. Sportsmatch make them as do B Square I have them fitted to my .22 LR and Daystate, very usefull. Also if you are shooting up and down/across slopes then a cosine indicator is very usefull.

    More kit to add to your .204.

    I bought one. I set the scope reticle to a true plumb line then supporting the rifle centred the bubble. I gave up after the umpteenth time of tightening the bolts the bubble had moved way off centre no matter how I went about tightening.

    I find the more expensive ones have a better quality of bubble...

    We sent many a lad for a bubble for his spirit level and a "long stand" at Drakelow apprentice training centre in the 80,s

    I think I need an imperial replacement bubble for my level, as opposed to the metric - or my skirting board ladder doesn't sit true - or I'd have had it.
