Yeah I have a Nikon I can pop on in lieu of the Loop.  I'm going to laugh if the gun shoots just fine with all that copper in it, and sadly conclude that the scope was actually the problem.

Hopefully I'm right and problem solved. Leupold will fix it and carry on...
I could care less about what anybody says..............

put it on a gun you've shot before and know how it shoots.  If the scope has issues it will show up.
Yeah, sage advice.  I was convinced one year that the scope must have been the issue.  Put the suspect scope on the back up rifle and a back up scope on the primary rifle.  The rifle with the back up scope was still shooting poorly, and the back up rifle was shooting great.  Good way to eliminate variables.

No scope issues.  Still won't group at all.  I used JB non embedding compound to remove all the brown and orange coloration from the bore before this last test. 

Four shots later from a clean bore, and man you should see how much copper is on the lands and in the grooves.

Gun is still under warranty from Winchester so I'm sending it in for evaluation.  Hopefully Winchester will install a new barrel.
