Question about Bausch and Lomb Bausch&Lomb Spotting Scopes - Elite
Were your mounts tight? I have had this happen to cause this to happen? By Mounts I mean ALL the mounts, every screw.... Also I have had a Reticle go awry INSIDE a scope and every time you shot, it changed its point of shot.
What I used to do, was Bore sight it with a little $2 laser pointer.. for about 25 yards, put the spot on the card and wind my cross-hair reticle onto the spot... Now it simply MUST be "On" well to at least 25 yards, then i go to the range and let one fly at 50 yards and adjust the reticle again moving the reticle to the bullet's impact point. Try a group of 3 - 5, getting it perfect and then move out to 100 yards, doing the all the same things.
Usually I make the gun shoot about 1" to 11/2" ABOVE the Cross Hairs, at 100 yards, this then, well with a lot of guns puts it dead on again at about 300 to 350 yards. and if you can reach out an tag to 400 - 500 yards it will be an inch or so LOWER than the aiming point, I have always found this pretty satisfactory for all my hunting conditions, from 25 yards right out to 500 yards, Oh, I always like to have all my shots at least within one minute of an angle, at 100 yards...But don't be too fanatical as remember most times usually you have a 30 - 30" Chest target, and generally anything in the "Boiler room" will give you your trophy or a feed. Now if you like head shots.. well thats another story.

I read a pretty good blog about sighting scopes, but it looks like you've gone through all the steps except for maybe the final shooting at 100 yds. Here's the blog, and he suggests a couple steps maybe you haven't tried:
It sounds like the scope may have gotten dropped or slightly out of adjustment somehow- you might try running it by a gun shop and seeing what they think, or if they've seen this problem before, and know how to adjust/fix it.
It sounds like you're getting there, but need to fine tune possibly, after you get a few more bullets to try.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
