Outdoor Skills – Hunting Q&A

I missed my one yearly shot at a deer because my scope-base screws were loose, and it's not going to happen again. Can you recommend something that will freeze them in place permanently?

Simply degreasing the screw holes and threads with lighter fluid will usually do the trick. If you want to go a step further, degrease and then put a small dab of Blue (No. 242) Loctite on each screw. The most powerful agent is aged tomcat urine. But obtaining it is a problem as aged tomcats often object to being squeezed.
