scope reticle adjustments

I recently purchased a SWFA SS-HD 5-20x50 (MRAD) FFP scope and was getting ready to install it on my rifle. Prior to doing so I was running the windage and elevation stops to get the cross-hairs centered, and now I have a question.

This particular scope should have 30 mils of total adjustment. However, when I ran the vertical (elevation) it had a total of 40.3 mils of adjustment while the horizontal (windage) only had 20.5 mils of adjustment. Any ideas as to why both the vertical and horizontal adjustments are off?

Personally I could care less about only having 20 mils of windage because I will end up using the reticle mils for any windage holds. As much as I would like to have 40+ mils of elevation adjustment (no need for a 20 moa base on my .308) I just want to make sure that there isn't something wrong with the scope if it's actually supposed to have a set 30 mils of travel both vertically and horizontally.

By the way, the glass on this scope is fantastic and I really look forward to putting it to use. Thanks in advance for your help and feedback.
