This works great for rings that are flat on the top like Mark 4's.  Buy two little key chain levels at Home Depot and place one on the scope elevation turret and the other on the scope ring.

I do pretty much the same thing with a small level, but I have always just put it on the elevation turrent.  Chris has it right, you want your level going cross-ways.  I have seen some people trying to run the level long-ways, that will not work.
