First Shot From Lightly Oiled Barrel

I noticed my new M700 .223 tends to put its first shot about 2 1/2" - 3" high @ 100 yds. from a clean & lightly oiled barrel. When I know I'm going on a varmint safari, I can run a patch through first. However, I live in the country & some shots are targets of opportunity. Is there a remedy (other than aiming lower) when you don't have time to swab the barrel?
