I tried sighting it in today again. I guess time will tell if it helps or makes it worse. In planning on eventually upgrading to a wood thumbhole stock and a mueller rimfire scope but that's not until next year.

I used a little Kydex to make this cheek riser. It can be slotted for adjustment. I can take the bolt out without removing the cheek piece.

This is my wife's FV in 17HM2 with a Boyds thumbhole. I had to shorten the stock and reshape the cheek rest to fit her. You will need new bottom metal (trigger guard and mag plate) if you get a wood stock.

Assumming every thing is tight you need to log how your rifle shoots cold and hot. Some rifles need to warm up to shot its best but knowing where that first cold bore shot will hit is a big deal. At matchs you do have "spotters" that allow for warm up and fine tuneing. Also what ammo are you shooting. A lubed ammo like what wolf and sk uses if shot in a cold dirty bore does not very as much as the same ammo in a cold clean dry bore or useing a unlubed ammo. Next time you go to the range see where your first 4 shoots hit and thry a different ammo and log it in a note pad. Nowing that will keep you from missing .

Borrow a different scope from someone and try it. Do not over tighten the rings. If the new scope holds the same point of aim, you will know what the culprit is. Looks like you have checked everything else.
