Man I just lapped my scope rings, used aligning tool and last but not least a cross hair leveling tool. What a difference it made!!!! All are from wheeler mfg. and not to expensive.I highly recommend them to all.

I do the same when I can, but takes forever. Takes me around and hour or more to lap. I do lap both top and bottom pieces however. Some only lap the botton piece of the rings. Then I have to cold blue the inside of the rings. All in all, about a 2 hour job or more.

I seen some pretty aggressive lapping kits lately in Rifle mag that might be quicker. I also own the wheeler.

Its really funny to see the faces of my hunting buddies when you say you lapped your rings !! And it also took me about two hours. I think it was really worth it.

When I lap rings (bottom 1/2 only) it usually takes 15 minutes. I lap until there is 90% or more contact. Mostly what I am trying to accomplish is to get rid of the high spots that will leave marks on the scope. I have never had a scope move in the rings but then again I don't shoot a 458 win either.
