Check that your bubble level is accurate. Reviews on Amazon for bubble levels are notorious for being inaccurate. Good luck.

I was given a rail mount bubble level and I dutifully installed it and made myself use it on my bench gun.  Man, my scope was waaaay off of level.  I got used to setting the shot, checking the level and resetting the gun again.  I tried for 2 months to get that dang gun to shoot right, adjusting the scope until it looked right and met the rail mounted level.  Later, I ended up buying a scope level kit and found that I was crooked in the other direction by a large amount.  I was much closer to level before I started using the rail mount level! 

 

If there is a way to screw something up – I will find it :)
