HELP...scope keeps slipping in 338E

I had a B3200 10x40md in a dnz mount for the first 95 rounds with zero problems and was so impressed I picked up a B4200 6-24x50md which requires a 30mm ring and higher mount. My first attempt was a weaver tactical 20moa base and burris signature rings. When the scope started sliding I yanked rings and mount and ordered a dnz 20moa 30mm mount. The scope is still moving! Every thing torqued, properly gaped, everything tight and still she tries to move under recoil. I put a anti cant ring behind the rear ring backed up to the ridge right in front of the zoom ring to make a mechanical stop and it seems to have worked but I can not imagine it being good for the longevity of the system. Any thought on other solutions? Thanks in advance........Duke

Have you tried lapping the rings to gain more surface area contact to grip? It solved my problem with a 300 RUM.

Apply some powdered rosin to the rings and that will solve your problem
