    Mounted on a Picatinny rail by any chance?
    It wouldn't happen to be one with a 20 degree slope and you can't depress the scope sufficiently to zero it at 100Yards?
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    It sounds like something isn't lined up or mounted properly then. It's not impossible to have a faulty scope but unlikely.
    You don't say if it is a lack of sufficient windage or elevation adjustment, or if this is a new/replacement scope or initial setting up.
    What are the bases, have you tried changing the bases around. How about posting a couple of pictures of the setup and the target at 50 or 100 yards. You should never have to resort to shimming with properly set up good equipment.

    Changing the stock should not alter anything unless you have severely overtightened one action screw over the other and twisted the action....doubtful but you could try slacking off the receiver screws and re tighten.

    Duralyts do suffer from lack of elevation but it was ok prior to re stocking the rifle?

    Was the scope removed when changing the stock? if so, is everything back in its original position?
    Check for obstructions (dirt) between rings and bases
    Are all the ring screws tight and even spaces between top and bottom halves (tighten in diagonal sequence)
    Are the bases evenly pulled down and tight?

    If all of the above are ok.....time to return the scope for checking to see if it tracks on a collminator.

    My 2p's worth as work today is boring my ass off !!!

    I too can't see how simply changing the stock would have effected it to any great extent, something's certainly adrift there mate.
