To lap or not to lop that is the ?

Last year I was in a hurry to shoot my new HS Precision and Swarovski Z5. I didn't lap the lightweight Talley rings. I have an October elk hunt in NM. Should I pull the scope and lap the rings? Is everybody else routinely lapping Talley (one piece lightweight) rings? Rifle shoots 1/2 like its supposed if I do my part.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

If the scope has not moved on you and the combo shoots good leave it alone.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

However, unless you're just really OCD, and feel it necessary. Regardless...I wouldn't bother with it.
