I was thinking of buying one but dont have any experience with them. The bubble levels look alright but i dont know if they are a pain to use when looking through the scope.
 
Ive found a few on the market.
 
 
 
 
The horus ones kinda cool cause it has the cosign thing on it aswell.
 
Does anyone have any experience with any of these?

I made my own, I don't see any real need for one on anything other than a Target, or Tactical rifle, and since you will be using a Bi, or Tripod the level is set before you squeeze the trigger so looking through the scope at it is really unnecessary for it to be useful, which is why there are so many that are externally mounted. Also the internally set levels take up some of the sight picture, which I don't particularly care for.

My Springfield Armory 6-20x56 Gen III has a bubble level built in. I use it extensively. I find that it also helps in leveling with scopes that do not have it. Gets you used to "checking level". I guess of the ones you show, the micro-level would be my choice, if the battery life is long and fairly predictable. I suspect that having to look outside the scope is a pain anytime. The micro-level is the only one that does not require looking "outside" the scope. The beauty of the SA that I have is that the bubble is inside the scope... can't see the target without looking at the level.

Well, most of the shooting that I do requires me finding a random clear cut or something of that nature and setting up anywhere. No nice level bench or anything. Usually I find myself on a slope since the forest gound isnt all that consistant. I was thinking of using a versa pod aswell to help with the adjusting. And like you mentioned, the rifle will be a heavy barralled one designated for shooting, not a hunting rifle.

I made mine as well , fits near the muzzle-end, off to the left , so my "off eye" sees it naturally.....just use it as a "set-up", then glance at it before the hammer falls....confidence builder for me.

No benches for me, either (except when sighting in, sometimes just practicing). I try to follow the regimen I was taught as much as possible.. standing, kneeling, sitting, prone. Most of the areas I hunt have steep inclines, 30 deg and more (I don't have to contend with a lot of other hunters, they won't go there, can't get a 4-wheeler in... I don't own one). I currently use a Harris HBLM-S which allows me to set up on an incline/pile of rocks, tree trunk, etc. and still get the bubble level. It is a HEAVY barrel (Winchester Model 70 Laredo 7mm STW). Every rifle I have goes hunting, otherwise it is not much use.
