Wheeler Engineering Professional Retical Leveling System

Wheeler Engineering Professional Reticle Leveling System is comprised of two machined aluminum housings calibrated to integrated levels that ensure precise scope mounting. A scope’s reticle must be precisely aligned with the firearm to ensure windage and elevation adjustments produce true horizontal and vertical compensation. If the crosshairs are canted even a little, bullet impact error will occur. This system is the most advanced available with precision machining, anodized aluminum construction, factory adjusted calibration set screws, and a protective molded case. Ease of use makes it a must-have for anyone who shoots a scoped firearm. Contact: Wheeler Engineering, Dept. FFG, 5885 W. Van Horn Tavern Rd., Columbia, MO 65203; (573) 445-9200;
