This introduces two problems. First, the scope is leaning and the bullet doesn't not strike directly on the vertical wire. Then as we dial on elevation, we are also inadvertently adding windage.
When you increase elevation ,you increase windage error if the scope is not level with the bullet
simply holding the scope level will not fix the problem.
Place a piece of tape around the scope next to the scope ring and make a fine mark on the
tape at the seam of the scope ring and then loosen the scope rings just enough to rotate
the scope in the direction that you want to move the point of impact.(It won't take much)
Re-tighten and shoot, it should have about the same vertical point of impact (No windage
adjustments from 100 to 600yards).
