If you’re a long-range shooter, you probably understand the problem of cant. Tilting your rifle a degree or two to either side of level negatively affects accuracy. The longer the distance, the more the problem is magnified.
Even a degree or two can make the difference between a hit or a miss when precision matters most. Check out this NSSF video for a clear explanation of the problem.
There are plenty of bubble levels out there to help you stay plumb, but most of them extend out to the left of your scope and stay there. But Warne, the scope mount people, have a much more elegant solution. Their new USL (Universal Scope Level) is a ring-mounted retractable level that gets the bubble out of your way when you want. Here’s their press release:
Precision long range shooting has grown in popularity over the last several years. New technology has allowed shooters to successfully engage targets at distances previously thought impossible. A level reticle is vital for success at longer ranges, so the product development team at Warne have designed a Universal Scope Level that attaches to any scope tube.
The Warne USL is unique from other levels because of its ability to deploy the level from an aluminum housing for use or stow, keeping the unit safe from being snagged when not in use.
Made of 6061 aluminum, the USL is available in 1″, 30mm, 34mm and 35mm sizes and is ambidextrous while weighing only .9 oz.
MSRP is $99.99 and is available wherever Warne products are sold.
