I'd return the rifle for another one. This one you have sounds like it will give you nothing but problems.Anyone had problems with factory mount holes not being correct?? I have a Savage 10fple1 in .308 the mount is off in the back. With the Burris mount on windage right windage screw is maxed out.
You could go to a "Side Mount", but if your rifle is shooting accurately then I would do nothing.Purchased in 2004 so no warranty return. With 168g Hornady ammo it can put 5 rounds under a quarter, even with misaligned scope rings..Some days depending on me it's better. So it's a good shooter, I like my guns to be right on and hit your target. The scope sets over to the left side of the barrel, you can visually see this looking at the top of the weapon..
