Should you use loctite or other adhesive when mounting scope mounts to a bolt action rifle? If so, what kind?

Michael, personally I use a couple of drops of Devcon on the threads of the base screws only. A lot of folks like Loc-tite. I would probably use the blue on a non-magnum rifle and the red on a magnum. George

What is Devcon and where can it be found?

Michael, Devcon is an epoxy. I really shouldn't have named it. Any epoxy would work. You can buy it at Wal-Mart or any hardware store. George
