I killed two Nikon Buckmaster scopes with my Savage MLII. It takes a real scope to stand up to hi recoil rifles. Glad you got her straightened out.

I know you solved your problem but yes a loose breach plug will cause wild flyers. I missed a doe at about 120 yards and had killed a coyote at 150 the day before so I was miffed as to the cause was. When I got back I turned the plug in about 3/4 of a turn by hand before it was snug. I am guessing heating up and cooling down and the miles of walking had something to do with it.
