Im trying to find one which is the best high quality (without considering the price) and what is the best medium quality (considering the price)?
There are those who feel the only "real" bore sighting is pulling the bolt and aligning the scope and target that way.
I use a cheap laser bore sight tool that slips in the barrel and serves me very well.
To mount a new scope I used a level, feeler gauges and a plumbob to place it level in the rings and level the reticle, then the laser to do a quick alignment for windage and elevation (based on the caliber) which puts me very close at 100yds (something I don't the "traditional" method does very well)

the reason smiths use collimeters is because its fast and easy to use in limited space like a gunroom.

i prefer traditional bore sighting. its free. i dont do a LOT of bore sighting so i see no reason to pay for something i can just do in a few minutes of work and lining up on something in the backyard or at the range.
