Could possibly be a visual thing that you will never entirely eliminate.  Since it is a Sightron scope it should be a good tracker so I would do this-

Set up a target at 25 to 30 yards with a plumb bobbed vertical line and an aiming point.  Keeping the vertical cross hair on the line, fire a couple of shots.  Then crank elevation down a couple of turns and fire a couple of shots.  Then crank elevation above original zero point a couple of turns and fire a couple of shots.  If the shots all fall along the vertical line then scope is aligned with the plane of pellet flight.  If not, rotate scope until shots all fall along the vertical.  THEN set the bubble level while keeping the vertical cross hair on the line (often helps to have a helper for that).  If it still looks off then its your perception.
