    I think everything was tight and attached correctly
    You most likely mixed up your scope mounts, may be with mounts from another rifle.

    You've got something bassakwards going on. It is possible to bend or deform a scope tube mounting it incorrectly. Pictures would help a great deal.

    I cannot tell for sure from your photos, but the rear mount on the XPR is, and needs to be, slightly taller than the front. Cannot be sure, but that does not look to be the case with yours. I believe you are using incorrect mounts/rings for the XPR, which would result in the scope pointing somewhat higher than the bore. Or you might have them reversed as Fitasc Shooter suggests...

    Once you get the rings straightened out. Bore sight it and then if you can, put it in a lead sled or similar device. You have it sighted in 5 shots or less. There are YouTube videos on how to sight with one and once you do you’ll never do it differently.

    Looking at these for the XPR on Amazon sure looks like one is a different height than the other

    CUT A piece of 1" dowel rod the lenght of your scope and put it in the sight rings. Tighten the ring on only one end and try to slide a dollar under the other end. Do the same the other way and one end it will slide and the other it won't. If so, switch the the rings and blocks to see if it makes contact on both ends now.

    Fitasc has it nailed. Your bases are wrong. You can see in the link he posted that the rear base is higher than the front.
