the velocity does sound a little slow what chrony are you using? you may want to try the Hornady Match 140 ELDM I've had better luck accuracy wise out of my wife's weatherby vanguard 2 with those at a 100 yards it shoots 3/4" or less

Seems a little slow, but you seem to have a lot of vertical dispersion. Horizontal looks great. How many rounds through the rifle. If very few, it may speed up after 50-100 rounds.
