The Bushnell Banner is their bottom of the line scope. I'd never put it on a rifle with that level of recoil. Do so if you wish. I wouldn't and I like Bushnell scopes but would never consider one below their Trophy line for such use.

Now onto the question. No way the rifle is shooting that low or left IF you are on at 100 yards. Has to be either a shooter problem or a scope problem. If you can go back and shoot the same small group at 100 yards with it then I'd rule out both scope and rifle as the problem. Free floating is not gonna help your 200 yard groups if the rifle is really consistently shooting as you say at 100 yards.

If you are getting 1/4" groups @ 100 yards free floating will not improve your groups. It will change your point of impact and make the rifle less likely to change point of impact with varying weather conditions. The problem you are experiencing appears to be a stability problem. I would try a different bullet. I had a similar problem with a 243 and when I swithced from Serria to Hornady the problem went away.

Good luck and good shooting.
