Well, there are a couple things you can do. First, it's ok to clean your rifle every trip don't get me wrong, but my 700 shoots better with a fouled bore. Think of it, you zero with a fouled bore, test handloads with a fouled bore, why would you hunt or compete with a clean bore?

My 2 cents.

If you handload, try some different powder charges, see if accuracy gets better. If you feel like trying a different powder, make it varget. I've never used anything else for 308.

Also, load your rounds a little longer, just off the lands. I load my .308 to 2.9 inches. Works in my gun. This will not fit in a mag, but great for target or competition.
