I'd appreciate thoughts on this:
I have a Tikka T3 in .222. Scope (Leupold VX11 3-9 x 50) is mounted in Optilocks. Has been shooting perfectly.
Set it down on bipod last night to have a look over the top of a small bank. Stupidly did not account for gravity, and rifle toppled over (went over on its side).
A minute later, took a shot at a long range bunny (180 paces). Missed that bunny, but hit its friend 2 feet to the left.
Subsequent tests revealed rifle now to be shooting a foot high and to the left.
I think the knock it sustained when it toppled over accounts for this. However - it did not seem to be much of a knock. Does this indicate that something, somewhere, is looser than it should be? What are the most likely culprits?
