Leupold quistion

std rings says to make initial windage adjustment using the screws on the rear base . Will this not torque the scope bad?

RAMP

Use never seize on the front dovetail if you use a
windage adjustable rear base this minimizes torque
on the scope and prevents galling of the dovetail.

I stoped using the adjustable bases because of cap
screw failures and switched to double dovetail or
rail type bases. The newer scopes have a lot of
windage (around 40 MOA or more) the old scopes were
about 10 MOA and sometimes needed an adjustable base.

Good luck
