It has already been proved that fitting shims to the rear mount is lowering the POI. So more shims are needed at the rear or try swapping the mounts around.

Putting shims in the front will raise the objective and therfore exascerbate the problem.

The way I read it is that is is firing high i.e. the POI is above the crosshair so shimming the front is needed to raise the cross hair up to the poi
