.

Assuming you can fire tight groups with similar rifles with
iron sights, it's probably the bedding of the action/barrel
on the Mosin you are shooting is torqued some how. Check
your action screws first for tightness.

the barrel bands are a pain to get off, i wonder if they could be too tight?

I cant really see the barrel bands being the problem.
I'd tighten all the screws, including the recoil bolt.

The only vertical groups I've had before were from not maintaining a consistent sight picture with a three post sight.
