I have a 742 in 30/06 that shoots 1 1/2" at 100 yds with rem core lokt 150 and 165 gr. My dads mid 80's 7400 shoots about the same. Try different ammo and check the sights. I have 2 hunting buddies that have 742's with consecutive serial numbers. Both their guns will print under 1" at 100yds.
The last time I had a gun that shot 12" groups the barrel was loose. Some auto loaders have a nut that holds the barrel tight to the action. I have never checked my 742 but that nut was loose on my 22 auto. Hold the butt stock and the barrel, wiggle, if its loose you should feel it move.
