So you have 2 308 rifles . But one is scoped and one just has iron sights. Thats comparing apples to oranges.I sort of did that with my iron-sighted .308. Same thing. I am confident it is the ammo.
I have high rise see through mounts on all my rifles so I can have iron sights for close shots in thick cover.
One has a small pearl round white bead as a front sight and the other is a orange fiber optic front sight
When I sight those guns in I have to use a 3 inch bulls eye at 45 yards for the fiber optic. The fiber optic covers the entire 3 inch bulls eye at 45 yards.
I use a 2 or 3 inch bulls eye at 45 yards for the small pearl bead sight. The white bead covers the 2 inch bulls eye
If I used anything smaller for bulls eyes for the different front beads I would not be able to find the center and be all over the target and easily be 6 inches off in any direction.
Sighting in with either sight on a 1 inch bulls eye would be totally useless.
Have someone with a scoped , sighted in rifle try a few rounds
