Aug dex is good for damage for both spear AND bow, but I think it has diminishing returns.
(For example over 320-330 dex, you don't see much of a big difference in damage and you'll be capped for evade anyway)
Even though my Hunter is heavily specced for bow use I still enjoy a little benefit from AugDex with the spear as you mentioned, which is nice.
I took it to 5 since after that the investment really was not worth the added points IMO, largely for the reasons you mentioned. 40 d/q buff + AugDex V + Kobo +15 start stats and I'm at about 338 dex when potted.
My current snipe spec at r5 is 35st 22spear 49bow 43BC, yeah I could go 19spear 50bow but that would leave a bunch of points unused and my OCD wouldn't allow it. I really love that red speed because when you add sprint to it you're in speed 5+ territory and can often keep distance from speed6 classes long enough to re-stealth after gunning then running.
Sure, I'm food if I get caught in melee, But I was losing 90% of the time when I had 39-44 spear anyways, so I decided to just go all in
