SS 20x42 mounted to AR15 Flat Top Picatinny with Burris Xtreme tactical 30mm rings 1" high.  Shoots approximately 2 feet right of aim point (outside of scope windage adjustment).  A why would a newly mounted scope be so far off and how can one adjust for it?

Take scope off.

Find mechanical center for scope.

Reinstall.

It's not the scope, it it's the mount/ring system.

I will give the Mechanical Zero recommendation a try, I see it worked for at least one other person on the forum.  If that does not work, I see someone else recommended a  ring/mounting system that has a windage adjustment which then requires minimal adjustments on the scope.

Thanks,
