    Yep, a quick update.
    I emailed back and forth with Warne and I also spoke with the gunshop I bought the rings at. I’ve not had any luck with being able to use them and the shop has asked me to return them.
    I will most likely look at buying a set or two of other mounts and rings to try.
    When I closed the rings against each other, the right half of both front and rear rings was a bit smaller diameter than the left rings so I think that could be the issue.
    I did not set up a bar or points as suggested above considering that the rings seem out of spec to start with.
    I believe that the rings are squeezing the tube causing the issue.

    I've got a few sets of both Warne and Talley rings like those, so I was curious. Certainly sounds like that set of rings is off. Best of luck with new mounts/rings.

    When I ordered Leopold QR Weaver bases for my Model 70's, there were different offerings according to the action length, and (I seem to recall) for Pre-64 and new FN issue, versus the in-between production. I would double check what Warne model you have, as a first resort.
