I would try another scope first to make sure its is indeed the scope and nothing else.

Leupold has one of the best C.S. departments in the industry period.

Good idea although I am thinking that it may not be a bad idea to have them go through it as long as I have had it anyway.

Always a good move to check the mounts

I never dealt with nicer folks and that keeps many buying their product, they have a very fast turn around time, probably check the scope for free.
 
Check the mounts as stated & toss a Walmart junker on it to check it at the range - thats how I check, oh yeah I have one of my kids fire the suspect rifle to verify myself.

Is it possible that the scope rings have been overtightened? I would check this before I changed any hardware.

Sorry to be slow to respond the wife had a few hoops for me to jump through. Yes it is possible I had the Cabela's people mount the scope and I have know idea of how they go about it. While we are on the subject who makes the best torque wrench for rifle work nowa days??

I have a Wheeler fat wrench. I doubt that it is the best, but it certainly does what I need it to do. I would recommend it to anyone.

I have a SK & snap on as well - as far as that goes the torque is not an "absolute" I have torqued rings way above the reco and still had scopes slide after a couple shots, even with all new hardware - torque everything, trial and error till problem is resolved.
 
This one pictured is a mild 7.62, two sets of weavers - no go, slide no matter how tight I crank them - waiting on Leupold QRW's to arrive - little Sammy pctured is a dead shot 4H veteren who often double checks dad Wink
 
Good luck with that.

Thanks for taking the time to post. It sounds like you may have had some bad luck with equipment QC etc. I read an article not long bask that addressed just that subject. Sorry to say I can't reference its location at the moment but will try and remember to PM the link if I were to run across it. Your shooting partner sure looks focused; I love to see woman in the sport. They often are a challenge or best everyone in the field.
