I would have to say I doubt you hurt the barrel on that when it happened. DO NOT try and bend the barrel!
For scope shims I use soda/beer can material. When I had extreme right or left issues on scopes I had success by switching the scope mounts either front/back or just flipped them depending on if you use a scope stop. For up/down adjustments I use a shim where needed.
