And if you did not catch it? JON made a very important point! The Scope Ring or Mount Cross Bolts must always be pushed forward all the way and make contact with the front of the Scope Base or Picittiny Rail Slot. Since with recoil the weapon will move to the rear with each shot this is "VERY IMPORTANT"! If you do not mount them forward against Slot when tightening the scope rings or scope mount. This might allow the scope to move forward when the rifle is fired changing the zero!

Mount and rings are both Nikon.

You will need to re-zero with those via live fire
