For now I just want to stay with factory box ammo. My budget is limited so nothing crazy above $30/bx would be appreciated thanks.

Using 168 FGMM most people report sub-MOA with their Remingtons. Yes, someone will report "well, mine only did___". Until you start rolling your own loads, FGMM 168 or 175 works really well despite the long throat typical of Remington factory barrels. Test a box to confirm and buy a case when on sale.

I have an older model 700 in .308 and the most accurate factory ammo out of my gun is Federal Premium with a 165 grain game king. I am a hunter and I have not tried any match ammo. I get .5" to .75" groups (3 shot) at 100 yds. with this ammo.
