Based on some of the things the "gunsmiths" have said...
I would bet they didn't lap the lugs. This happens a lot.

This not necessarily true. My 300 Win Mag Model 70 Laredo has this problem and it shoots half inch 5 shot group. As a matter of fact, it took almost a thousand round before I start noticing the right lug showing some sign of contact. (By the way the bolt is CRF). I haven't done anything on this rifle but adjust the horrible trigger pull.
To achieve the maximum possible accuracy, all variables must be remove or at least minimize.
