8 Here’s another tools that works quite well for setting up scope bubbles, cosine device, reticle cant and bore scope alignment all at the same time, along with a plumb. Used in conjunction with EXD Engineering Vertical Reticle Instrument bubble…. it work great. It’s the Empire Magnetic Post and Pipe level…. Which can be magnetically attached to the barrel’…, scope/rings, or action even with open sights. It let’s you see the cant in four directions while I work on the others’…, it’s been verified with the EXD.
9 Empire Magnetic Post and Pipe level placed on barrel. Make sure you set the Empire with the reading from the EXD after obtaining the correct cant.
10 Another shot of Empire Magnetic Post and Pipe level with EXD level on scope and barrel. The EMP allows you to bring the center of the bore close to a perfect level to set the Sniper Tools Cosine Indicator which needs to run off the bore.
11 You've got to have a plumb line, again 25 yards plus. It's really better at 100 yards do to parallax problems with high magnification of tactical and target scopes.
