I have biggest problem trying to get the rifle level to ground and then the crosshairs level with the ground (aka scope level with gun)
Blame it on the phone auto correct

Usually you can find square surfaces under the scope turret and on top of the receiver, anything with parallel sides can be put in the gap and twisted so both edges are flat against the scope and the action to level the scope. Or you can use a rule against the elevation turret and plumb it against the side of the receiver.
