I had a question about adjusting the zero/level/alignment of the scope reticle to the action. I have tried searching but it has been vague in answers. I have a Burris MTAC 4.5-14x-42mm scope. I am going with a solution I am able to do at home inexpensively. (I may change my mind and go to a gunsmith because I am a bit OCD and it'll bother me if it's not dead level horizontally). I found a tutorial that uses a level on the Picatinny rail, while using a bob on a line and shooting a light through the front of the scope and aligning the crosshairs(reticle) to the shadow on the wall with the line. I'm sure this isn't a perfect way of doing it so I wanted to try the other way I see a lot of people doing it. By using a level on the action OR base and a level on the turret. My concern is how do I know that my level resting on my turret is properly aligned horizontally with the reticle? Is this an industry standard? Should it always be perfectly verticle/horizontal with the reticle? The reason I ask is because in a forum post on someone leveling their scope with the base, another experienced member said something about not truly knowing if the adjustment turrets were even true to the reticle horizontally or vertically. Unfortunately that is about the only thing I could find and it was from a couple years back so the post is dead on that random forum. I have a few levels but I just cannot justify a leveling kit for $50 + with only one rifle. I would rather have it professionally done if I am going to pay about that price, esp if I don't truly know if what I'm doing will be properly aligned.
