actually, your reticle may not be canted at all. don't know about your scope, but most have a circular tube that holds the crosshair. when making adjustments, you are simply pushing on the outside of this tube either on the side or the top. the farther you are away from the center of adjustment, you will actually move the horizontal when changing the verticle. again, the farther away from center you are, the more it will affect the other adjustment.

Hmmmm, food for thought.

I scanned a sketch in to show why I think that if may be the scope is rotated

For example if the scope were rotated a little clockwise, clicking elevation on the top turret would move the internals along axis A. When raising the barrel for the new aiming point, it would move up to point G and then over to point H which would throw the POI along the axis D.

If you can read this, thank a teacher.......if you are reading this in English, thank a soldier.
