for acuracy, money will be better spent on a good trigger (match grade) than on a barrel.

A good trigger will allow the shooter and the barrel to shoot to their full capability. If the barrel will only shoot a 4" group with a Geissele trigger then the next step is to try different ammo or get a better barrel.
I have seen barrels shoot 6" groups with 55gr fmj ammo, Geissele trigger and Nightforce scope and 2 minutes later the same barrel shoot a 1/2" group with 69gr SMKs.

I've been through this with my BR-AR. The biggest change was reloads. Factory ammo, even Blackhills, is not up to par. The day I loaded 24.8gn of RL15 and added a 69gn HPBT Matchking, I had a new rifle. The trigger upgrade helped, but not nearly as much as the ammo.

My AR is a RRA lower, RRA 2 stage trigger, and White Oak Match upper (free float, Wilson 26" SS barrel etc).
