Scope screws stripped

I bought the gun and the screws were already stripped. I tried to get the scope off and stripped them out more. Anyone know a way to get these things out?

I saw an article in "Family Handiman" this month about stripped allen screws: said to put a dab of valve grinding compounding on the end of the wrench to take up the slack and apply down pressure while removing. Probably won't work if you have completely rounded out the hole. Have not tried yet, but sounds reasonable... Just sayin'...
