I don't see how your shoulder could take the pounding from shooting out a 270WSM barrel. If the rifle is not accurate it is more than likely just dirty.
You can boil them antlers all day long boy and you still can't eat 'em

To lose MOA accuracy, a rifle would first have to shoot MOA. Do you have proof that this rifle once shot MOA or better?

Good observation, I didn't notice the gun in question was bought used. There's no way of ever knowing how accurate it might have been when new. If it were mine, I'd keep trying loads or just hunt with it if it gives minute of deer accuracy. People killed lots of deer years ago before the magic 1 moa standard was applied to deer rifles. Most any bolt action can be made to shoot 1.5moa.
