If you could post pictures of your set up maybe it would help.

I guess you are using the factory two piece weaver bases and rings and that could cause problems if the new scope doesn't fit right with that set up.

ETA: A quick search on the internet shows that the factory rings may come with some type of two sided tape or foam to hold the scope in place. If that is the case with your rings I would clean all that out and see if it helps.

I think I may have figured out what’s wrong. Hmmm

it is a Nikon Buckmaster. 4x12x40. What do you mean remove the turrets?

Most scopes will allow you to remove the outer turret with the markings on it, so you get set it to “0” once you zero the rifle and some will give you some additional clicks. Look at the manual for the Burris XTR II as an example.
