If you're shooting off a bench then I'd go with some match type ammo but if you're shooting your AR as it was intended then MOM is fine. Russian stuff is more than capable of minute of man all day long.
It has a lot to do w/ personal use/taste. I am not a bench rest shooter. It's boring and not practical for me as I'm not a hunter and mostly shoot w/ defense in mind.
The extra shooting I can afford do to using steel makes a big difference. It adds up to quite a bit.
Now when purchasing defense ammo cost is rarely an issue.
