What are you going to do with the rifle and what do you expect out of a match grade rifle?

1 MOA out of an AR15 is easy. 1 MOA at 800 yards is all about ammo selection and shooting skill. What caliber are you looking for?

So if an 800 yard shot is easy, a 1000 yard shot is not out of the question? and as far as caliber the .308 would work well, but just to satisfy my curosity what about a 6.5 grendel or a 6.8 creedmor?

A .308 is not an AR15 round, it requires and AR10 size weapon. A 6.5 grendel should work well for what you want but factory match ammo is hard to find. There are a number of .308 AR manufacturers that can give you what you want... all depends on what you want to spend.
