Yes, take out the paper shim. You can't shim a scope successfully placing the shim inside the ring.

I have a test for you to conduct, but first tell us, can you bore sight looking through the bore and dump the laser gizmo, and how far out can you place a aiming point (target, tin, can, etc) to use when bore sighting (yards)?

I've swapped scopes between 10 or better in my collection. All do the exact same thing. I run out of up adjustment. Im not sure how to say that in better terms. I put just the upper in my shooting rest in looked through barrel at target at 10 20 50 yard increments. All are the same. Run out of adjustment

Take your BSA scope and center the elevation and windage turrets. If you haven't done this before......turn the elevation down until it reaches the stop. now crank it up until you reach the upper stop, counting the MOA as you crank it up. Now divide by 2 and take it back down the amount of MOA. Please tell us what that amount of MOA it is to center the elevation reticle? Do the same thing with your windage.

Check the rings on your rifle. It looks like in the photos they are mounted flush, but please check them to make sure the bottom of the ring base is flush with the top surface of the picatinny rail. Or at least both front and rear rings are equally flush.

Now line up that upper on the 50 yard target sighting through the bore and tell us how many inches off, in what direction (up/down) the reticle is at the 50 yard distance.

That's correct, it is not likely you will detect any difference, although if you were shooting, you would have a change in your POI (point-of-impact).

After taking shim out. At 25 yards and after finding center of elevation adjustment I'm several inches low. Adjust to get crosshairs lined up and run out of adjustment. About three inches

It appears that with your 1" high, 1" rings, there is about 2.5-2.75" between the center of the bore line and the center of the scope sighting line. That should be enough to get onto the scope and get a good cheek spot weld. Unless those are some really chubby cheeks you have.
