Default Proper scope mounting

Haven't mounted a scope in about 5 years, just want to make sure I remember how to properly mount one. Clean area to mount base, blue loctite base to rifle, set scope in rings, make sure cross-hairs are verticle/horizontal & proper eye relief is achieved (.338 Win. Mag.), then blue loctite rings together. How tight should I make the base & ring screws? What's the best way to achieve proper eye relief (don't want to get smashed in the eye w/ a .338 Win. Mag.) & to ensure the recticle is horizontal/vertical? Did I forget anything?
