Apparently Ruger has employed some engineers who want to impress the world with their new math skills, since they seem to believe it is essential to have scope mounts of two different heights to align the scope with the rifle barrel.
They do that because the receivers on their rifles are often stepped, which requires the bases to be different heights to place the bottom of the rings at the same level.

If you're having problems mounting Ruger rings on a Ruger rifle, odds are good you are mounting them in the wrong locations. Switch them back to front and see if things don't change for the better.

Varying heights on Ruger rings are not something new.
