    Ok Ive got a couple questions concerning mounting my scope. Its a Burris Euro Diamond 4-12X50 30mm tube and Im putting it on a .52cal knight long range hunter with leupold quick detach rings and bases. Ok my question is how tight do I get the scope rings on the scope, should it be snugged completely down so there is no gap batween the top and bottom sections or just to where it feels snug? I dont want to worry bout damaging the scope trying to get it to tight and i dont want it to loosen up and loose zero either. Also what about the bases at what point do I stop turning the quick detach tabs just to where it says lock or as far as it will go or how do I know when its good to go?
