Probably because the rear bridge of the rifle is so high. The little lean forward makes the front sight base come up to level the rifle.
Crawling the rear sight with a ball cap on can push it even farther forward unbeknownst to the shooter sometimes.

What is the barrel date on yours, if I may
ask, and are all the parts Winchester (W)?
I will have to check the rifle for that information, will get back to you asap
