Would there be any hope that a metric allen wrench would fit now? I have done this too.
Once you get past this problem I would look very carefully at the fit to the action. It will probably need to be bedded. Also as you draw it tight to the receiver, place a straight edge on top the rail and see what kind of stress you will be applying to the scope tube. I had a EGW that was so far off from front to back mount pad it added 30 moa to the cant. Had another that removed 30 moa. Hope you have a good one and dont get into what I did.
