Most 55, well all 55 grain bullets are pretty crappy. Try loading with 69 or 75 grain sierra matchkings. Most of my rifles really like the 69grain smk.
The reason 55's are pretty crappy is they are made cheaply and the jackets are far far far from uniform in thickness. If your getting 1-1.5 with 55's you prolly already have a decent barrel. You just need higher quality bullets

The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...
