    Note: For you to attach this level, you need a 1-piece base. Here is a base for $40

    Now that a simple yet nifty little tool!

There is no specific spot to set it other than what looks easy for you to peer at with your weak eye. Speaking of which - check to see which of your eyes is dominant. The level can stick out either side - stick it to your weak eye. So in my rifle I am left eye dominant. I therefore stick all of mine out to the right. This way without changing my cheek weld or moving my eye relief, I can peer down with Top turret is elevation.. Side turret is windage. If you are not level with your weapon, then your elevation turret will have an effect on your windage and your windage turret will have an effect on elevation. It will make you insane trying to dial it in, so always be level.

    Okay, first that looks awesome! Second, how do I determine which eye is my dominant eye?

    So folks a few thing have happened since my last post. I haven't been able to make it to the range as much as I wanted to because of work. But that's all about to change this week because I am on vacation (woo hoo). But the Mrs. was awesome as always and took my to Gander Mountain to replace the stock scope before I tried sighting in the rifle. I purchased an Leupold VX-I and mounted over this past weekend. Wow what a difference! So hopefully later this evening I will make it out to the range to sight this puppy in properly. However their longest range is 50 yards. Any suggestions or advice? Also I can't seem to find a good check rest to make looking through the scope just that more comfortable. Any thoughts on where a good place to look would be?

    Use a ballistics calculator to see where your bullet should hit at on the 50yd target as if you were shooting at 200yds. Ballistics Calculator - Hornady Manufacturing, Inc

    You have to know what ammo you are using and what its specs are,,,,velocity and ballistic coefficient

    With both eyes open, point your finger at a distant object. Close one eye, then switch and close the other eye. Your finger should appear to move off or away from the object when one eye is closed. If the finger does not appear to move, then the eye you closed is your nondominant eye.

    Another variation of this test is to stretch your arms out in front of you and form a triangular-shaped hole with your fingers. Look through this hole at an object about 10 feet (3 m) away, keeping both eyes open. Without moving, close one eye, then the other. The object should appear to move, possibly out of the triangular window, when you close one of your eyes. If it moves, then you are looking through your nondominant eye.

    Here's what I use for cheek rests on all my rifles - I go with black but you could do whatever color you like. $30. They are adjustable by putting more foam under but I seem to need like 0.5" of rise to get perfect welds and sight pictures. My daughters are more like 0.75" to 1" so maybe I have a giant head or something. In the pouch I keep like 20 rounds and a laminated bullet drop chart I make for each type of round. Just Microsoft Excel, and some of that clear packing tape. Nothing fancy.

    This is some good reading no just purchased the same gun since dicks(sorry guys) had it on sale for 289 plus a 40 Mir. I figured 249 for a scoped .308, why not. Now to sight mine in. I'm a right hand shooter, I tried what was mentioned above about dominant eye. Weird thing is both ways the object moves. I must be doing something wrong

    Well both will move but one will move a tiny bit and the other will jump completely out of the triangle by a long shot.

    Do this from Youtube:

    Bore sighted my butt. I took my new 783 out today to sight in. I was dead center just 3 feet down at 100 yds. I couldn't believe it was 3 feet but at least it was center so I just had to go up.
