I need rings to mount a Leupold 2.5-8 on my S&W 460 Performance Center w/ 10" bbl and built in weaver rail. I tried the Leupold QR rings, and the scope slid in the rings. I want something that will hold the scope better, but want to be able to remove them relatively easily while hunting to use the open sights.

What have you used on something with this much energy?

I have used locktite on the inside of the rings before to keep the scope from sliding.  Dumb question but they are the right size rings?  (not implying your dumb just making sure)

Rings and scope are 1". I was thinking using 2 sets of rings if they fit, unless I can find a wider ring, with more surface holding the scope.

Have you tried lapping the rings just in case?

because handguns are lighter the recoil velocity is higher, try some double stick tape on the inside of the rings.
