Default ? on Rings for 300 RUM

I have a Remington Sendero SFII in a 300 RUM. I have Leupold Dovetail bases and rings on it. I have right at 40 rounds through the pipe and the ring screws had already came loose? Wondering if there is anything that I can do to keep these tight or will they seat in and not come loose after it is shot in a little more? Just seems like that they loosened up very quick. I realize the recoil is fairly heavy but I did put a break on it to help reduce this. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure I want to loctite the rings, bases have been loctited but I've always heard you never want to put loctite on the rings?

They make different types of loctite. Don't use the red stuff. Go to their web site or call them. They have something you could use.

Putting Loctite on any mounting hardware is standard. Just use blue loctite and you will not have any problems removing it when you need to.
