I ran into this myself.  After checking, rechecking, and checking again, i realized it wasn't the scope, but me.

I placed my target backstop out and made sure the top was level.  Then i mounted the paper target level.  Looking through the scope it looked off.  Using the level cross hairs on the target, I held the rifle level and practiced with this setup for weeks until the hold felt natural.

Now, when I'm out in the field, i feel better about my hold.
