I don't seem to be able to keep mine cinched down tight. At the end of a days hunt it is always loose. Is there something I am missing here? What say you? Thanks...

That doesn't sound right.

Are you adjusting the ring with any regularity?

I've never had that problem, Gary. What about some white pipe thread tape like they use on water fixtures? Easy on and easy off if it doesn't work.

It is still under warrantee, send it back to Leupold.  They will have it back to you in a couple of weeks.
