Hmmmmm, not sure I 'fully' understand the situation. Its a bit early here and I was up late........
12 up and 70 down = 90 total.
Figuring that you have zeroed at some distance and get the 12 up/70 down from the zeroed turret setting something is amiss. One would think the zero setting would be a bit more towards the center (45 up and down).
The plane of the action seems canted, the wrong way??
If two piece bases are being used the scope may be in a bit of a bind.
A visit to a local reputable gun smith may be in order.
Isn't the shooting sport such fun.....
