You must have a brake on the rifle? I've never had a scope slide back toward the shooter on any non-braked rifle. Mine always creep forward in the rings, when they have crept.
I've not had a scope creep on a braked rifle yet, so I don't know if backward creep is an issue with muzzle brakes or not.
The heavier the scope is, the more likely a scope creep problem. If the bottom half of the rings have been lapped to a good fit with the scope tube then you may need to add a third ring. Lapping that third ring could be interesting unless it lies in the same plane as the existing two. I've heard of both rosin and lock-tite being used to prevent slippage in the past. I've used a small dab of lock-tite before but never rosin.
