mad- my dad use to go ballistic growing up. i would strip or break off more bolts than you could imagine. so i was obviously over tightening

that said, 25# is pretty tight. i actually thought 25# would be lighter. i think it's because it's a torque screw drive. if it was a torque wrench, you would get better leverage 

maybe i just didn't have my Wheaties today @--0--0117 --099-780

Just curious Yari - now that you have that torque wrench, would you say you've overtorqued or undertorqued stuff in the past when you've put it together with a calibrated hand (gut feel) instead of a calibrated tool? In my case I'm pretty sure I've been bearing down too hard on those little screws using just an allen wrench - I need to go do a little experimenting & see if I can get an estimate of how far off I've been.

bo- i think the makers of the rings and bases set their own standards no the scope company. (unless they are also making the rings)

bo- i believe i posted i bought a tract toric 3x15x42 ultra hd. i thought i did @--0--0117

the bases are mounted. i'll get to the rings later this week. i really liked the wheeler torque screwdriver. very easy to use

Blue - Good idea...
Madgomer - Yes put the old blue Locktite on the treads of the screw not down the hole.....LOL.....
Yari - What kind of scope did you get? For some reason, Vortex came out and said that they tighten down to 18 inch pounds, and not the 25 inch pounds as the industry standard calls for......Vortex came out with that statement just last year....

Bo has it down Yari the only thing I add is a strip of the thin double sided tape on my rings. I lay itt in top and bottom and then mount the scope and tighten. I t give syou that extra bite to hold the scope in place.

Congrats on a very successful season, in more ways than one.  Filled some tags, found some new promising hunting land,  you guys didn't do bad at all!
