This will be my first post on here after signing up so feel free to blast away as appropriate.  I note the question was posed to the OP about whether or not he lapped the rings ?  I posed a question on a different forum, admittedly not a long range precision shooting forum, about mounting a new scope on a new rifle that I am trying to put together for bench shooting and long range prairie dog hunts.  The responses I got were basically do it if I want but if I buy good/great rings lapping is not necessary.

The gun I have is a Savage 10T-SR with a factory mounted 20MOA Picatinny rail.  The scope is a Vortx Viper PST 6-24x50 EBR-1 MOA with FFP and etched lights reticle.  I figure I should be able to reach out to 600 yards.  The rifle is chambered in .223. 

So - if I spend the money for good rings do they need to be lapped ?  Thanks in advance.

By a set of Sphur or American Rifle Company rings and you will be good to go.
It pays to be a winner.

I have never lapped a set of rings, and I have never had an issue. Seekins or vortex precision (made by seekins) rings are my go-to for bolt guns.
