SA barrel index off?

672 1
I've got a Springfield Armory that tends to shoot to the left. Last time I shot at 200, 300, 500 yards, each shot group was off to the left -- even if I adjusted for windage at the previous yardage.

I heard once that that could be a result of an improperly timed or indexed barrel, and one way you could tell was if you had to move your front sight post way over to the right. -- which I do on this one. Right edge of sight is almost touching right edge of front sight base on FS.
