Sometimes a rifle just does not like a certain bullet no matter how good it is or how bad
we want to use it .
If you are getting good SDs and poor groups chances are that your barrel does not like
the bullet you want to use.
Try another bullet of the same weight and if it doesn't change much, Go to a different
bullet weight. Barrel harmonics have a great deal to do with accuracy and bullets of
different bullets will effect the harmonics.
It could also be the bedding.
Just a guess.
