I'm not as savvy as some of these shooters are, but I just can't understand how it could be a scope issue if you use the same crosshair on the same target at 100 & 200 without touching the scope, focus or anything.
Not familiar with Savage's, but some scope mounts are dedicated for the front & rear, one is thicker than the other. Are you sure they are on correct? Are you using + moa mount? How high is your scope off the barrel? Sure it's not touching or even real close?
Sounds like the post above, sounds more like 300 yards.
Wish I could help you.

My thinking is it could be a busted reticle. When my Nikon scope reticle blew out several years ago it acted in a similar fashion. Of course, a busted reticle can probably act in any possible manner, but nonetheless it would rule it out and if it's functioning properly one can get a true measure of the MOA of the clicks.

That's more like the drop at 300 yards, are you sure the range was 200?
2x This is what I was thinking
