I have a bad habit of swapping scopes from one rifle to another, or buying a new scope and putting it on a rifle that has a different size of scope. I'm wondering how often I can turn out the dove tail on redfield type of bases before I have problems with wear or slop. What tends to wear, the base or the dovetail ring? Most of my rifles have weaver type rings, but I do have 2 that use standard turn-in type dove tail in the front and the twin windage screws in the back. I have noticed that after swapping out the rings several times that turning them in seems all most too eazy. Is this a problem?? Seems to me like it could be. I'd like to know how other shooters deal with this. I suppose the answer is to stay away from dovetail bases unless you know what your going with and don't change it?? Thanks for any info.
