It's worth it. Opens up more stuff in the forums and shows you're really part of the family. There are other benefits I'll leave as a surprise and more coming in the future.

Any advice on what would be the best threaded barrel to go with for maximum accuracy and range would be grate also.
Frankly, you'd be better off with a Savage or Marlin if you want a sniper system, and with those, you'd not have to change out the barrel.

Frankly, just about ALL bullets can be lethal further than they can be shot ACCURATELY. A 30-06 or 8mm Mauser is potentially lethal at a range of 4 miles. But the only thing you will hit with any degree of certainty at 4 miles is the Earth.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
