    Looking for a solid 30mm scope mount for a $100 or less. I know the Aero ultra light mount is often recommended, however I’ve heard it’s annoying to level. Are there other decent quality options that are easier to level or is this issue overblown.

    The aero ultralight was a bit difficult to level because when you torque the scope mount screws, the scope turns to the right. So I just twisted the scope a little to the left before so when I tightened it it would make up for when it twisted to the right and I got it pretty close to perfect. Definitely not a overblown issue.

    If you use your phone and measure how many degrees the scope rotates when you torque the rings down. You can offset it by that much the opposite direction and be perfectly level when you do it for real. Done it twice like that now and its worked great thus far.
