Help with new 514 youth

I recently posted about a new rem. 514 single shot youth rifle. I found out its really a repacked marlin xt22.
The groups were outstanding for the first 40 rounds or so. With blazers or mini mags the groups ranged from .09"-.226" at 50 yards. Now all of a sudden they are .75-.95". I tried cleaning it to no avail. There was no wind at all. I realize Im complaining about great groups, but I would like to get the original accuracy back. The only thing I did was paint the stock. I tightened the action screw back to original and I had it off several times before the groups fell off.
Could the little bit of paint I got inside the stock have caused this? I did paint where the action sits and the barrel also. I wouldnt think that little bit could cause this.
These are some of the original groups.

My first instinct is to look at the bedding. IIRC that model is a "one screw' takedown. It is possible that either the wood has burnished in the tang area, leaving the action "teetering on the screw, or the wood has crushed at the forward bedding and the screw is pulling down on it unsupported.

It is a plastic stock, but Ill check it anyway.
Thanks

Well, my exact SWAG may not apply with a plastic stock but those actions are so simple I look at bedding instinctively..

I stripped the paint off the bedding and Ill try it before I glass bed .
One thing I have learned is to try 1 thing at a time.
