When i bought my savage .22-250 the scope was already mounted and supposedly boresighted. I couldnt hit anything, someone had tightened down the screws on one side then went to the other. The rings were touching on one side but there was an 1/8 in gap on the other.
Yes, I forgot to add you must use a bench rest. Also, my scope mount was loose and had to be re-tightened at some point.

Sicilian- you said you lost the owner's manual, and did not know which knob did what- the link I sent you is to the owner's manual. And yeah, you need to be shooting off a support- at least a sandbag.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
