Have you tried shooting the factory ammo with the NF and verified how it shoots?  If it used to shoot good with this ammo and now it doesn’t well?  Also when is the last time you cleaned your barrel?  Rifles can foul out and everything goes to heck in a hurry especially with a Remington factory barrel. You’ve introduced a lot of variables into the equation with all of your reloading components so could be anything. The last thing I’d expect is the NF. But it is a mechanical device so there is a 1% chance.

Last time I cleaned the barrel was a few months ago. Roughly 200 rounds since. It shot factory Hornady 168gr Amax pretty good when I first bought the rifle.

That was actually the next step I was going to do before sending it back to NF. I will go buy a box of factory ammo, clean the barrel and see how it shoots.

I clean about every 100 rounds. I am going to guess that is it.

I’ll be keeping better track of it and see when groups start to open back up.
