Bushnell sells nylon inserts for scope rings that fit inside of the scope rings and will affect the height of the ring to correct the problem. If you install them on the front scope ring, it will correct it and realign the rings correctly. It appears that the front ring towards the muzzle is not as high as the rear ring near the breach. This is why that even though the scope's adjustment is elevated as high as it will go, it is still hitting low because it is actually pointing down because apparently the rear ring is higher off the barrel than the front ring. The Bushnell inserts can correct this.

First is to try for a group, do not adjust the scope in any way. Shoot 4 rounds with out adjusting the scope. The gun should settle down and start to group. If you can not get a group in 6 rounds go clean that gun & check your ammo. Start over. If she does not group, its the gun not the scope. Once it starts to group move the cross hairs in the opp direction small clicks and "TAP' the scope after each adjustment. Shoot for a group each time 2 rounds should group. Get a target that has a grid to help get on faster.

Start buy loosening the scope in the mounts. Loosen the front first to see if it is in a bind (left/right). Tighten it back down but not completely. Loosen the rear looking for some movement or popping sound. If you see a movement or notice some odd thing. check the mounting slots for dirt or dings that may cause an offset to the mount. If all is well. Go and start and zero for 13 - 15 yards. you want to be 1 1/2 inch hi. Now after each shot rap the scope with a screw driver handle or something solid, just to give the scope a shock not hard enough to bend it or dent it but shock it. Large scopes are meant for larger shock than a 22 produces, rapping the scope will help move the cross hairs and settle them in place. Hope this Fixya up. If it does help, please leave a testimonial. Thank you for using Fixya.

You backed it off too far and the alignment screw came out of the internal guide. They are usually pretty close to accurate when they are released from the factory. Make sure your mounts are in proper alignment and tight before trying to sight it in. 1 click is normally 1 inch at 100 yards.
