Default .22lr long range accuracy

This is one I can't answer so far.

Why does accuracy fall off so quickly with range with a .22lr?

I have a gun that will shoot less than 1/2" groups at 50yds, but struggles to make 2.5" groups at 100yds - with all other things as equal as possible - using wind flags - parallax adjusted - ammo not going transonic - tried multiple ammo types. The dispersion is more vertical than horizontal on these 100yd groups.

It seems like all .22LRs are like this from what I've found.

Anybody got a .22LR that shoots less than or around an inch at 100yds or an explaination?
