Is that the only bullet you've tried?? My rifle really liked the 140 sierra fb with rl25 under it or the 175 hornady with 5010 under it. Both were at around 3.650"-- basically mag. length. It tolerated the 140 accubond with rl22 pretty well also.

Try a different powder then. I'd step over to a double base if single base isn't cutting it here. Think Ramshot Magnum or rl25, etc. Switching powder types is often an easy accuracy fix.
I've gotta ask you though, has this barrel shown the ability to shoot well, ie. thrown some sub moa groups at 100 yards?? I had one 7rum with a poor barrel I gave back to my gunshop because it had a big chamber and showed no promise accuracy wise; 2 moa was rather good for that rifle. I don't really count that rifle; remington had it in their posession longer than I did and they wouldn't fix an obvious flub up.

My rifle didn't turn on well with retumbo; my brother's pipe IS doing well with it. Some rifles are just their own beast. Be really careful with round count here- you've only got 500 shots or so left before accuracy will start falling off.
