Any action screw that comes into contact with a pillar is the kiss of death to accuracy. I would sand out the barrel channel, put 4 wraps of tape on the barrel at the end of the stock to center it, dremmel out about 1/8" or more wood from 1.5" ahead of the receiver all the way back to the tang area and epoxy bed the rifle. Put several wraps of masking tape around the action screw shanks to make sure when it sets up, you will not have contact with the pillars. That should fix your problem.
