It wears a Leupold VX2 3-9X40 with a dot reticle and a Gen Tec suppressor. For the life of me I have not been able to get this gun to group well with any ammunition I try. From factory to hand loads, I'm lucky to get a 3" group at 100 yards with it.

The barrel is chambered in 5.56 or .223 it cant be both.

I'm guessing its 5.56 which since your having this issue. It will never have the best groups if your shooting .223 ammo out of it vs shooting the 5.56 ammo.

Best bet is to change to the barrel to .223 Wylde it really tightens the tolerance/difference ( and yes there is one) between the 5.56 and .223 bullets.
