Default Scope set up help please

Today I took my EV2 MK4 out for the first time to set up the scope and a couple of problems arose
Better tell you what I have fitted first
BSA 10 x 50 x 60 platinum scope with home made side wheel
Sportsmatch mounts (I think)
Barry Taylor adjustable rail

Zeroed the scope at 35 yards and worked brilliant
Zeroed the scope at 40 yards and worked brilliant
Tried to zero at 45 yards and run out of upward travel on the turret

I then thought to myself rear of rail will drop a little so removed scope and found rail was fully down at the rear so no adjustment to be had there

Refit scope and tried at 35 yards again bang on for height but about 2 inches to right

By this time most of the lads are down on the course and im frozen daft so called it a day

Have I made a real beginners mistake or is it something to do with my mounts (they do look to be a poor fit on the rail)

I will be going back up to Emley next Saturday to have another go at zeroing so would like to have a idea what to do to correct this
