"...buy better bullets when..." Only if your rifle is up to 'em. No point spending a pile of money of match bullets if your rifle's barrel, trigger sights, etc aren't up to 'em. Have a .243 like that. Great trigger, sights, bedded stock, with a mediocre barrel. Shoots a consistent minute of deer, but there'd be no point using match bullets out of it.

My AR definitely has the barrel on it to push match bullets to great accuracy. But even my match AR needs some blasting ammo.
