If the scope is not removed a lot as in QD mounts to attach other gear then I agree it should be ok .

Forwards...backwards....right and left depends on the way you are sitting next to the weapon.

Call it what you want! When I install rings on my rails I located them HARD back against the stops and THEN screw them down tight. Never had a one come lose. Mine are a pretty close fit to the mount screws / rail slots so if one ever did get sloppy...Id see it right away.

You're a free man and over 21...you do yours as you wish and I'll install mine as I do until I have any sort of trouble. It might not work on a 460 Weatherby...but then again neither would I...

Yes, this is being mounted on my Mark V .340 Weatherby Mag. It does have a brake on it that will help tame her down some. I will look into the options given so far. The gun will be used as a hunting rifle not a bullet burner at the range.
