Yesterday I checked all mounting hardware and did not find anything wrong. I am not sure but I may have had the lock lever on the wrong side which actually caused the scope to mount different. I checked the zero at 10 yds and set it dead center. I had decided that what SSGN_DOC said was the problem. After that I aimed at a point that was about 25 yds and the impact was about 3 inches high. I checked another point a little farther out and the same thing. I had suspected that that was what was happening because I remember the dirt behind the target at 50 yds looked as if I was shooting over the target. So when I set it at 2-3 inches high at 10 yds then I was way high at 50. I had no idea the trajectory was that high. I will check it at the range sometime this week.
Thanks for your input folks.
