Scope causing hop rise?

Just wondering, has anyone else out their experienced their scope causing an illusion in which the BB rises, but actually isn't? I'll take a shot while looking through my scope, and the BB will rise out of the FoV a little bit. The next shot I will level out the rifle and shoot. The BB then appears to float strait for a solid hundred to a hundred and twenty five feet or so. The reason I think it may be causing this phenomenom is due to the small objective lense of 32mm and the 4x magnificationf the scope amplifying the effects. Any input or am I crazy?

This happened to me back in the day when I used my UTG m324 (generation three). The hop up would be all set, bbs shooting on a flat projectory, and all was good. However, when I attached the scope, and looked through it (to zero it in), the shots would appear to go up, as if the hop up was set too high. Simply had to adjust the scope (turn notch to left--meaning "down") and took another shot from the rifle. If it was still appearing high, I would simply turn the notch again.

Not sure if this is the case for you though. Did you try to adjust the scope yet?
