Fine tune that parallax while zeroing. And I don't mean to a crisp picture.

This is what bothers me. First round is the one dead on. Then the group. I used the group to re-zero and they all were tight. This is 200 yards. Those are 1 x 1 squares

You kind of lost me here.

Are you saying your first shot is dead on, but then POI shifts when you shoot a group, and you then adjust to bring the group to POI-POA?

Stupid picture. The 3 shot group is actually low left. Just like my impacts at 1482. So on the parallax how do recommend I set it. It might not be correct.

Well that seems to be the case here. I need to test this again and see if happens consistently. Thoughts?

Your picture shows about 2" Low and 1.5" right.

If you are consistently getting this kind of shift then either something is loose inside your scope, your scope mounts are loose, or you have an impingement problem somewhere or your action screws are not properly torqued.
