I have to assume the standard ruger rings must be re-zeroed each time they are removed. I have had a few ruger rifles and never tested this, but i feel confident that is correct.

A question you might investigate would be to see if Leupold, Burris, or others make a Quick release ring for a ruger rifle that does return to zero.
