Need advice on duplication accuracy of Hornady factory ammo.

Been reloading decades and own many bughole rifles BUT the Hornady Match ammo shoots 1/2" 5 shot groups and I can't duplicate it.

H 1000 & same Hornady bullet w/same OAL with get me to 7/8th"

Suggestions ?
I have a Seekins Havak 24" 1-8, Grayboe Phoenix stock. My load so far is 143 ELDX New ADG brass, GM210M, 57gr RL26, COAL 2.950, 2945 avg Vel. .50-3 shot groups @203 prone/bipod/rear bag. ADG and Gunwerks brass is the same. ADG will be available next month. Hope this helps.

I just finished my 6.5 PRC build. Bighorn Origin/ 7.5 twist Brux at 29". Shot a couple boxes of 147 Hornady Match ammo to break it in, which shot great for banging steel out to 500 yards without issue! Have not started reloading for it yet, but I am going to start with Gunwerks brass/FGMM 210/H4831SC/150 gr. SMK's being I have a decent supply of these components

Sorry about such a late post but I’ve heard RL26 is what Hornady uses so I tried it at CBTO of 2.208 what the factory ones I had were. From 53.5 grains shot.339 group at 100 yds. 55.0 grains shot.381 at 100 yds. 147 Hornady match bullets!
