Yes, I know better. I put a new scope on my .222, a 6 ~ 18 Meopta. I did not loctite the two mount bolts or the six mount screws, assuming I would need adjustment at the range for eye relief. They were properly torqued with a torque wrench. Well, I can tell you it does not take too many rounds fired to have essentially ALL the fasteners loosen up. No adjustment was needed for eye relief but my group sizes began to get larger & I figured I was just tired. NOPE. When I got home & began cleaning the rifle & prepared to put on the loctite, I found all the screws & mount bolts varying degrees of loose. especially the two main mount bolts. Maybe I was not so tired after all.
