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.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
