I use 3 on heavy recoiling guns. Some guys use 4. 50% more support and grip friction around the tube. I have seen scopes flex or slip with 2 rings. I like 2 in the front as the moment arm produced by recoil is greater away from the fulcrum of the grip. I also mount scopes with the scope turret front pushed tight against the mid ring to prevent the scope from creeping forward under recoil.

HOW MANY RINGS? AS MANY AS YOU CAN GET ON THERE! WITH THE WARNE MAXIMA RINGS ITS 3, WITH THE SSK RINGS ITS 4. YOU CAN CARRY "SPARE" RINGS IN YOUR POCKET OR ON YOUR SCOPE, ME I LOAD UP THE SCOPE.

Yup, on the heavy kickers more is better.

I used to put 3 rings on all of my heavy kickers, until I discovered Tactical scope rings...I've had great success with 2 tactical scope rings

3 should be fine on the 4x because it's light enough that it doesn't get the same forces on it as a heavier scope like the 2.5x8. BTW you can mount 4 rings with the 2.5x8 but you have to take a dremmel tool and mill a dish in the front of the TSOB base to allow the bell to clear the base.

No arguments from me. Use as many as you can. Just make sure they are identical rings of the exact size and I.D.
