Weatherby Vangaurd 7mm rem mag. new Barrel options

My quistion is should I replace the barrel or save up for a new gun?
Am I expecting too much from my Weatherby Vanguard?

I own a 7mm Rem Mag Weatherby Vanguard I bought when i was 16, 26 yrs ago. I have killed many elk and deer with this gun. I have gotten into reloading and long range hunting. I purchased a knightforce optice 5.5x22 nxs. I am looking for reliability and accuracy to make ethical shots out to 800 yards. I am able to shoot groups at 200 yards 4 shots under 1.5 inches. The more I shoot the accuracy goes down. When shooting from the bench, how much time should I take between shots? What could I expect from a new custom barrel assuming I could even put one on my action?
