    when i asked my local outdoors specialty shop to level my scope they said it wasn't really nessesary to do so, and it was all in the preference of the shooter. is this true of am i buying into the "corprate" non-sence?

    Your local outdoors specialty shop is misleading you. If your scope's crosshair isn't level with the axis of the bore you will cant the rifle upon shooting it. This will cause inaccuracies with your shooting. Level the scope yourself or have somebody competent such as a gunsmith level the scope for you.

      Who ever that was at your outdoor "Specialty" shop is an idiot! Find a new store to go to. Your crosshairs must be level to shoot properly.

        Yep, as above, it is very important to have a level reticle in your scope. There are a lot of high quality DIY kits out there that give you everything you need to get it set- levels, lapping rods, you name it. Good luck!

          O'BROTHER!

          Before you go twisting on your new scope, how close is it to bore sight alignment? You just might need a set of rings that come with off set spacers to align the axis of the bore/shot with the scope before any sighting in. My encore MZ happens to be one of those freaks!
