Ok, so we have 2 major changes to the rifle, and are blaming the bullets?

Some rifles perform better with some pressure in the forestock tip.
Also, i'm assuming you used something to accurately torque the base, and rings. Gorilla tight will throw off a scope.

will say i floated the barrel recently plus just got new scope.
Did you check the action? I have read that sometime's the action get's soft under the rear tang from cleaning solvent getting on it. I always bed the action in either glass or better, I think, liquid steel. If that rear tang bed surface get's soft you can pull it down tight and actually get a small bit of bind in the receiver. You might try tighting the front screw down and just getting the rear screw snug and see how it shoot's. If that help's tape around the barrel at the fore end tip, put bedding compound under the rear tang and tighten down the front screw. Tape at the front of the barrel channel is to keep the barrel from pulling down and taking pressure off the rear tang.

The action doesn't get soft. The stock under the action area could.
Although you'd need to be pretty heavy handed with the solvent.
And never take your rifle apart to clean/oil the bottom of the barrel and stock.
