Scope rings???

Kind of a newbie here. I just bought a pair of Burris XTRs for a Falcon Menace scope to mount on an AR-10. I've heard that even these rings will allow the scope to slip a little so I'm wondering if I ought to get some ring inserts and if that will help? And if so, what do you all recommend?
I plan of doing more benchrest, precision shooting rather than off-hand, rapid fire. So I won't be blasting away without taking time to aim.

I could be wrong here (and someone will correct me if I am), but I don't think you can put Inserts in the XTRs. AT least not the ones I have. If you are having or think you'll have issues lap the rings and you should get more contact.

Re: Scope rings???

If you have a picatinny (weaver style) type base, the Burris Signature Zee rings are the ones that have the inserts-They work great . I have used them for a long time and have never had a slippage problem.
If the Burris rings you currently have, did not have inserts with them to begin with you cannot use inserts with them.
