Just my rings to mount the scope on my Savage 10FP.  Mount is EGW 0 moa, rings are low aadland.  I watch CS tactical's video on how to do this properly.  set gun on table leveled using shims on one leg of bi pod, with level sitting on rear flat of the action. My savage is pre-accutrigger.  I installed base and placed levels at front and back of rail.  bubbles are not centered with each other. The bubbles are both between the center marks but front level bubble is touching right line and the rear level bubble is touching the left line.  thought it might just be me so I put scope on placing a level on the top turret and placing its bubble dead center. Now when looking threw the scope the recticle is canted to the left.  What now?  Thinking the actions screws my not be straight.

Did you try bedding your base first?  http://www.8541tactical.com/scope%20base%20install.php
If you action is off or the holes slightly off, you'll definately want to bed the base first.  I'd suggest taking it off and checking the base with a straight level to make sure it's true to start with.  If it's still straight, then bed it.   Now mount your rings and torque properly, and finally put scope in rings, level scope and torque ring caps.
 
Do a google search for mounting a scope using the feeler guage method and you should be good to go.
 
 
Good luck.

Just checked for straightness.  The front two screws are in line with each other but ever so slightly off from the rear two.  hope my smith can fix.  if it can not be fixed will it hurt the scope.  im sure people have done worse but i want it right.

You know the reticle is canted because the level on top of the turret says so? You may have addressed this and I missed it.
