Ok so i had alittle accident in deer season this year, and i DROPPED my 7mm from the carrying position while walking!! I of course left it at home till i had time to shoot it again and veryify zero, and when i did shoot it for some odd reason the windage adjustment doesnt seem to work correctly, but the elevation seems fine. when i say doesnt work correctly i mean the rifle would shoot about 1" left consistantly, so i moved 4 clicks(1") right, all of a sudden it shoots an inch right! dialed back 2 clicks(1/2") and it went right back to shooting an inch left. i was then very frustrated cased the gun up and went home. i havent been able to look at the gun since then, this was very frustrating for me since this is usually a very accurate and consistant rifle/scope combo that has taken deer at 400+yds. obviously i need to shoot the rifle again before i do something as drastic as send the scope back, but i was also wondering could a ring problem or something cause this?? the rings are just whatever was on the gun, and after thinking im alittle worried about them, should i change rings too?? what would be a good process to deal with this, a set of steps or something maybe?
