Photography Color Gamut

I shoot mainly birds & wildlife, with the occasional portrait and landscape.

My camera is a Nikon D500 used mostly with Ultra Zoom lenses.

I shoot in aRGB. I process in aRGB using Elements 2018 with the Element Plus add-on

I use a LG Flatron IPS 235 27" Monitor for processing. It displays 97% sRGB with a resolution of 95 dpi. I calibrate it fairly often using an older model DataColor Spyder 4 Express and also compare the screen image of a standard file to its color certified print.

I print using an Epson Stylus Photo R3000 using Epson paper and the generic Color Cone Pro K3 pigmented ink.

I print in aRGB.

in recent literature I have read that, since my monitor is incapable of displaying the full aRGB gamut, I would get better correlation between my printed image and my monitor image if I used sRGB throughout from camera to print.

Is this correct?

Would I get better prints if I replaced my monitor with a wide spectrum screen that could display more of the aRGB gamut and allow me to use aRGB though-out the process.

It is a very expensive purchase !
