With HXP charge weights approaching the mid-50's, that indicates that the powder is slower than the IMR4895 typically used in USGI M2 ball. And, I would not load 45.0gr of IMR4895 with 150gr bullets.

I guess I can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
Yep. Best thing you could do for better accuracy is pull those FMJ's and replace them with 155gr BTHP's. The quality of the bullet used is the primary determinate of how accurate a particular load is.
