Well, the brown Santa Clause (UPS man) brought me some goodies yesterday. . .a new Leupold VX3 scope and two sets of Warne Maxima rings! I had to change my MGM base out for another one in order to get three rings to mount correctly on there, but I got it done and my Encore looks pretty sweet. I must say, those Warne rings were the BIGGEST pain it the ass ever to install! I almost started using my "creative vocabulary", but I got them on there and I believe they're gonna be the ticket, they feel pretty stout. Providing Mother Nature doesn't have too many ill plans this weekend I plan on getting out to the woods and sight this thing in. If I could post pictures to this site I would share my shooting iron. I'll keep yo all posted on my range time. Thaks for all the input.

After getting them on the scope and the slot inserts back in and keeping everything in place on the base, I snugged up the bottom screws just enough to keep things together. Then I set my eye relief and put my scope leveler on to get things square. Then I did as you mentioned and went around alternating screws a little bit at a time until all were tight and scope was level with my base. So far things are looking pretty good to shoot this weekend. Fingers crossed!
