That's helps out a lot. Thanks!!!! So now that brings up another question. Which buffer weight should I go with? Just a standard? I'm building a .223

Depending on your AR or more specific it's gas port diam. the required weight will very. The weight will alter the cyclic rate bolt bounce and felt recoil. There is a sweet spot as well as to heavy or to light. Go to heavy and you'll run into feeding issues.

Most common would be a H buffer. I personally use a couple Spikes T's, an H2, and a A5 standard weight buffer.

Spikes is making a T3 now which I'd like to try.

If you're spending more than $40ish on a buffer something is wrong.

so i must confess. i paid 140 for my buffer and spring. however im so happy i did. my friend bought one and i shot it his rifle with it in.. theni went and bought one. heres the site Heavy Buffers | Products
its a custom tungsten buffer. i have one fo rmy a2 stock. it completely eliminated both mine and my friends boing noise. and the cycle is very crisp. it made the bang a touch louder but reduced recoil. my advice is buy one. you will be amazed. my friend and i both own stags. mine is a standard 20' his is a carbine. just my 2 cents
