You mean the windage clicks? I wonder if you are experiencing cant-induced crossover.
Let's assume the scope is ok and the reticle is set up square on the rifle. What if you are unknowingly canting the rifle slightly when you shoulder it? It feels right to you but it is on a slight angle. This means that the barrel is now slightly to the left or right of the centre of the crosshairs. The crosshair would also look wrong to your eyes when you shoulder the rifle.
Just speculation but it is the only thing I can think of that might explain both things at the same time.
