1.5 inches was well inside of military acceptance accuracy. Many times these rifles will shoot a flat base bullet better than a boat-tail. The M2 ammo they were designed around is flat base. Deep cleaning may help, or not, sometimes the copper fouling acts as a "filler" in pitted barrels, dings at the crown or wear from old steel cleaning rods can also be a culprit.
