    maybe incorrect scope base or incorrectly mounted scope for the rifle. no real way to tell without close up detailed pics. just taking a stab.

    You might want to try getting a bore sighting kit...It will help put rounds on target alot faster.

    Can yes describe what you mean here? Is the scope itself not aligned with the center axis of the barrel or are the crosshairs misaligned with the barrel?

    Do you have the proper mounts for the scope ring base, i.e. dovetail, weaver, etc. Is the scope properly secured but not torqued? How does the gun shoot with ironsights?

    yes i believe the scope is not aligned correctly with the actual gun i was looking up the barrel and noticed that the scope is slightly aiming left, also i looked at it from an eagle view(if that makes sense) and confermed that is was off. i didnt think to shoot with just the iorn sights, could the gun be messed up or the rail? im bassically looking to see if anyone here has had this problem and a way to fix it(if it can even be fixed) well any ways here are some pics i took maby it will help a little. its a Savage Mark II if that would help at all

    thanks Eric

    I doubt the rifle itself is bent, I would unmount the scope and examine the mounts on the receiver, a screw may have come loose or the mounting hole rounded out causing some play. If the mount is ok check the rings, are they correct for the rifle and the scope. The scope has to be aligned exactly with the center line of the barrel and level front to back. Make sure that the barrel is aligned properly in the receiver, don't use the stock as a reference until you are sure the barrel is aligned correctly.

    If the rifle and scope are not damaged it has to be the base or the rings. Just a thought, has the rifle been dropped with the scope mounted, something may have torqued it out of alignment.
