I am having a windage problem with my Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 MC . I bought brand new Warne Maxima Quick Detach Rings with Weaver Bases. and mounted it on a brand new Weatherby Vanguard Varmint 308 win. I tried to bore sight it but ran out of windage by about 2 inches... I am not sure what I need to do here.
Most likely a problem with either barrel or base installation. The OP sent his scope back only to find out it was a problem with his base. Problems with the rifle are far more common than most people think.
Look at my earlier post, #7 I think. You can use an 18" straight edge and a second ruler to measure the distance between the ruler and the barrel.
