I'm not going to knock lapping rings as a waste of time and effort, because there are situations when it may be the best option, but have you already eliminated all other variables causing the misalignment you're experiencing?

Do all mounting screw holes in the receiver align properly?

Are you using a one piece scope base or two piece?

If you're using a one piece scope rail, does it sit flush with no gaps?

Are you using name brand rings? (Beware of cheap, poorly machined rings)

Remember, you are combining several different systems, probably all manufactured in different facilities on different machines. All provide an opportunity for different tolerances between each other.

There's a good chance that if you eliminate all tolerance inconsistencies between the mating parts it may not be necessary to lap your rings.
