Anyone else having problems with accuracy?

Ive had 3 members, this Kimber Hunter being the 3rd. Ive never had any luck with accuracy. I had a Montana and couldn't get it to group under 1.5 inches with any ammo(260 Rem. ) I sent it back and received a target after some minor work. It was 1 inch at 50 yds with Remington Core-lokts. 100 yds is the standard I thought. I traded for another one because it still wouldn't shoot. It was just as bad. I figured things were sorted out after all these years. This is my new Kimber Hunter 7mm-08. Ive tried 3 different factory loads through it with a lead sled and 2 different shooters. Combined we have about 80 years of shooting, installing scopes, handloading, and bore cleaning for us and close friends. This one is frustrating. I talked to customer service about sending it back. Should we really have to send a rifle back that left the shop at a 1 inch MOA guarantee? Ammo shot was Remington 140gr, 120gr, and Hornady Superformance 139gr SST 5 shot groups, cleaning , Fowler shot, hot, cold, it didn't matter.
