Oh know my Elite 6500 shifted ?

Sighted my AR-15 that has a Elite 6500 2.5x16x50MM mounted. Took it into NV desert and shot many targets. Scope right on target. Left it in gun safe a few weeks then brought it to Rifle range and it was was off by several inches? Does this mean my scope is broken? I was able to adjust it back on target with little effort.

    Hard to say. It could be a number of problems. Were there significant temp changes? If you have a temp sensitive powder it might cause pressure differnces which in turn might change your POI.

    Hodgens Bench Mark is the powder 26.0grs 55gr Nosler BT Oh know what a second it was sighted in shooting Hornady 55gr V-Max not Nosler 55gr. Hope that's the problem.
