IMHO, among the mass produced AR-15, the Colt stands head and shoulders above the others. Some of the smaller makers, such as Knight, LM&T, Wilson, Noveske etc. produce excellent quality weapons as well.
The economy models like DPMS, Stag, S&W, Bushmaster, RRA, etc make very good good weapons that well serve you well, but the isn't quality isn't quite equal to Colt.
Just my personal experience, YMMV!
The best ammo will depend on use. I like M193 ball for practice and M855 ball or Hornady 55 TAP gr for social work.
