Default two stage/match trigger practicality

so, my thoughts are, if im using a 20" match grade barrel and would love to be able to do some precise long range shooting then a quality trigger should be in order. However, i also am interested in doing some varmint hunting and will also do a fair amount of good ol fasion plinking with it.

my question is this: are there any reasons why a high quality trigger group would be detrimental in my desire to have an efficient coyote slayer/plinker? any issues with reliability or function of parts in the field? at this poing a reliable vermin killer would slightly trounce ultra-precision.

i want a rifle with high potential but if something would relegate it to a strictly bench rifle i would take the hit in accuracy over the potential loss of field potential.

sorry if this has been beaten to death with a big bloody stick.

I love my RRA 2 stage match trigger, and I'm running a government profile 20" upper on a basic iron sight AR.

Makes shooting so much more enjoyable, worth every cent, I'd imagine if you're going varminting it'd be a necessity. Breaks like glass and improves accuracy.

If reliability is primary I'd suggest the geissele SSA. I also think highly of the jp.

That being said, you're very unlikely to have issues with a RRA match and will save some money.

Jewells are nice triggers, but I would question the suitability of any adjustable trigger where reliability is the primary objective.

Murphy's law generally applies - anything that can move, will.
