never have liked them, but some case's have to go with what you have, made a purchase of some tcr barres, with the leupold base, is there a fool proof way to be certain they are on straight and square? I am setting a grandson up with one gun, six calibers.


hold on Newt, we got a runaway

Measure base to base with top of rings off as close to bottom as you can, each side with calipers. Should get the same dimension. Or use a steel rule and lay it on edge base to base. It should be in full contact.

You are talking about the two piece that the rings rotate into place? Not a fan myself but have these rings on my first rifle, from way back.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

And torque each side of the screws the same.

But really, for the love of God, find a different scope mount. They cause all kids of trouble. They should cease to exist, and Leupold should make a press release apologizing to the public for ever designing and producing such an abomination.

I think Redfield introduced the twist in base and Leupold popularized it.

Either way, you are correct, there are better choices.
