I would say it depends on your finances. When I got tired of borrowing one from my dad or buddies, I looked around and bought a sight mark laser, it does the job and didn't break the bank. I am sure there are much better ones out there but this one is simple and less than $50

Get close to target - 2 shots - shoot one on paper - aim exactually at the target as your first shot - hold your rifle very still and have a buddy adjust your scope till the cross hair is on your first shot bullet hole - 2 nd shot should be dead on

I used steel ground centers to check rings for alignment and lapped them if needed befor mounting a scope - passed the tools on with a laser bore sight tool -- just say n

What are you sighting in? A muzzleloader or any bolt-action rifle, just remove the breech or the bolt and sight down the barrel the old fashion way. It'll get you plenty close on paper to dial it in after a few shots. And it's free.
That’s how I do it! Seems to work good!

The above is the easiest and most reliable method( and it is free) there is and is more accurate than any bore sighting. You can normally sight in a new scope in 5-6 shots total. Start at 25 yds for the first and then the 2nd adjusting shot and then move to 100, normally 2-3 more shots and you are done.
