http://shopruger.com/searchscopering.asp Look at the "scope ring chart" for the correct ring. Theres a link to it. Or cut some soda can shims , put under the scope, in the rings. Cans are about .004" thick. Use as many as needed.
If not, try a set of Burris signature Zee rings and a set of their inserts. I used them on a rifle of mine that had the same problem. Worked great
You can use the above adaptor or several other types to adapt to other rings. That said the soda can trick is super cheap and easy. I had done this on a ruger 77 once but could only fit one thickness before I had trouble seating the rings tight to receiver. Cans are so thin these days you might be able to get 2 layers if required. If you want something nicer you can purchase it from Grainger or MSC direct and cut to fit.
I would do that before spending more money on rings or cutting up soda cans.
Just my .02,
Center the scope's internal tube by resting it in two V blocks well anchored, then rotate the scope while making adjustments until the reticule stays at one place while twisting the scope. Look into the objective lens after doing this and the inner tube will be well centered in the outer tube.
Next two items on my "most misunderstood mechanical alignment" list are, when the round's fired, is where the case positions itself in the chamber and where the bore axis points relative to the point of aim.
The V block info has been in the bushnell scope mounting instructions for years. But as we all know, no one reads instructions on how to mount a scope.
