You really have to be careful when setting the mount in the grooves and screwing the bolt in. When mine failed me, all was tight, just wasn't hitting my mark.

I don't man to say it's absolutely the mount. Maybe borrow another scope?
I think we have our abbreviations confused, I have the steel Smith enterprises long mount...It has fit my receiver wonderfully....I am kind of leaning on the scope being out of wack some how,It does not seem to be tracking like it is supposed to....I am putting the mark 4 on as we chat.
