Way we used to set ours up when Roo shooting was perfect.
We had a big old vice on the back of the toyota.

 Walk out in to the scrub 100m or so, put up a sheet of ply. We would bore site the scope, then wack it in the vice aimed at the ply.
Load a round, pull the trigger.
Adjust the scope so the cross hairs were on the bullet hole in the ply.
Less than 5 minutes, always perfect.

Sounds like allot of work  :P

I use 2 small bubble levels when mounting the scope 1 on rifle 1 on scope, Boresight it and usually only quater inch off.

In other words exactly the same way you did it  :-\

Still the best and easiest way
Depending on calibre, set the aimpoint an inch to 2 inches high at hundred yards, and it is within 2 inches high or low out to 240 to 280 yards

The link at the top is good for showing what to do first
