Cabela's allegedly bore sighted two scopes on two rifles for two different firemen friends of mine. They used some sort of "bore sighting device". Both rifles weren't on an 18" x 18" paper at 100 yards. I pulled the bolt on both rifles and bore sighted the old fashioned way and both rifles were miraculously on paper on the first shot.

Bore sighting tools are a waste of money.

udamdan,
Make sure your scope is on the rifle perfectly level before you go too far on sighting it in. It may just be me, or it may be the photo, but it doesn't look level with the rifle to me. That will make a difference, when you raise or lower the crosshairs you will be moving left or right also, and when you move them left or right you will be raising or lowering also.. To level the scope, prop the rifle level by taking the scope off and placing a level across the bottom half of the ring that is attached to the rifle. Then hang a string with a weight from the wall you are sighting on to give you a perfectly verticle line. Line the verticle crosshair up with that to give you a scope alignment that is level with your rifle.

The picture on the wall should be level, the crosshairs look level with the picture, but the rifle looks like it is leaning to the left. Once again it could just be the picture makes it look that way...

I covered that in the sticky above.

Another way is to slip the proper stack of feeler guages between the bottom of the scope and the scope base, provided you have a one piece base. This simply puts the bottom of the scope parrallel to the rail. It is no guarantee of level if the screws in the action weren't machined top dead center.
