Good morning, GoGo. Louisville is going to be dangerously hot today. It's 70 now, going to 95, with a Heat Index going as high as 105. To make things worse there's a huge outdoor music festival down on the river today and a major NASCAR race at the Kentucky Speedway, which is about halfway between here and Cincy.
I need to level a new scope on my 6BR today and my challenge is how to do that without a proper bench setup. I guess I'll set her up on a table here in the house, level the rifle at the full-length scope base and then level the scope using the top of the elevation turret. I like the idea of one of those gizmos with a rod that inserts into the front of the barrel and then holds a crosshair that you align the reticle to. But since I only mount a new scope every 2-3 years at most, I've never been able to justify the purchase. If it were cooler weather I'd do this at the range and mount a target level at 100 yards or so, but getting out in today's heat just wouldn't be smart.
Y'all have a good'n, drink lots of water, and stay safe out there.
