    RED loc-tited the ring screws? I guess you'd have to have high confidence in the scope not breaking, too!

    I won't even blue-loctite the screws until I'm pretty sure I ain't gonna play musical scopes - when I'm very happy with the "marriage" of rifle and scope for the particular purpose at hand. Probably have less than a half dozen like that blue-locked.

    Uh, no... because that would be stupid.
    Red Loctite, are you kidding?
    Why don't you spot weld the rings and bases together too?

    Absolutely not.

    I move scopes around all the time, whether it's a good shooting combination or not.

    NO

    I've had high end scopes fail and require service.

    And besides I've never had scope ring screws come loose. A better expenditure of your efforts if you're confident in a setup would be to mark the rings and caps for their location on the rifle and give them a good through lapping
