My Millet rings came with what looks like hard rubber shims with an adhesive backing. It almost looks like they would fit inside the rings. I have a 10/22T with a 6-24x44AO, and need to shim my scope to raise my point of impact. If I put one of these on the rear ring only (inside), would it cause undue stress on the scope body when I tighten it down since the front one does not have one (the scope being slightly off level inside the rings)? Or are these things designed to go in the rings (both front and back) to protect the scope body from scratches...etc? OR, are these things designed to go under the scope base between the reciever?

Those are nothing more than pieces of friction tape that go inside the rings. Not really necessary for a .22 but I did use them on my .338 WinMag (couldn't resist). I also used a Weaver base on my 10-22 after putting on a target barrel and all those nice accessories.
