    The OP said he is shooting .22lr. not a centerfire.
    To be able to do 1” groups at 100 yrds needs to use the highest quality Eley ammo on a bench rest type rifle.
    Maybe the 4”-5” groups OP is getting at 100 yrds is excellent for his rifle.

    Update. Just had rifle on bench to begin the process of bedding the barrel and noticed that the scope mount was loose. It looks like the screws were stripped. That's what could be causing the bad groupings. I re tapped the screws and tightened with Loctite high temp. Solid as a rock now. Finished the bedding and giving it 24 hrs. then will clean and re assemble. If I an unable to get at least 2 inch groups at 100 going to get rid of it.
