Sounds Like you have a handle on your problem and have an idea how to deal with it.
Milling the new holes is the correct way to fix the alignment because drills will follow the existing
holes and wont correct the problem.
It is also the most expensive way to fix it ,But you can use any base and rings that you want
(A real plus).
This was very common with all factory rifles in the past but not so much any more.
