All things considered, the simplest answer is usually correct. I'd look at the scope first. Did you reshoot at 25 yards after the problems at 50? Try that, see if the gun still shoots as it did. If it does not, check over the scope mounting, etc. If it does, then something is destabilizing the projectile (round ball? Slug? Sabot?) and you have to look at the load and/or the barrel.
There are other possibilities but that's what I'd look at first.
