A very good improvement in coefficient of friction gain be had with corn starch.
You can test this in your barrel vise.

Re: using rosin on scope rings

I had a big ol S&B that was walking in the rings. I sprayed some 3M high strength flexible adhesive on a piece of plastic and then used a q tip to smear a light coat on the top ring only. Tightened things up and its never moved. That was about 10 - 11 years ago...

Put a dab of lapping compound between the ring/scope prior to snugging it up.

The abrasive will bite the ring/scope and prevent movement. It's like having a zillion little teeth chomp on the parts.

Re: using rosin on scope rings

Interesting concepts. I believe the 3M adhesive would be the least destructive to the scope tube.....

In that vein, 3M General Trim Adhesive (the black stuff referred to as 'Gorrila Snot') would probably work as well.
