Like everyone is saying, 1.5 is plenty good for hunting. I once got a 1/2” group at 100 out of my sporterized 06, but can’t remember what load it was. Still have the rifle, I shot hornsdy superformance out of it last time (a few years ago now) the performance was awesome, I won’t bother trying other factory stuff.

I shoot 3 round groups in hunting rifles, they aren’t varmint guns after all. I liked to get some of the smaller diameter paper plates and try firing rounds all on the plate fast as I could to prep for season. Sorry this is all past tense I stopped hunting for a few years and am just returning now

You can also check the stock bedding, see if there are pressure points on the barrel. I don’t remember if that was mentioned.
