I'm hoping to get a 300 BLK upper from PSA as soon as my payment posts to my credit card. It will be minus the charging handle and BCG. I just need to pick the hand guard. I was thinking YHM mid length.
The FN barrels sold me on PSA and they still have the 300 barrels in stock.

In addition to the convenience mentioned by buffalolake, optics can tend to interfere with your ability to acquire the charging handle, particularly if you're wearing gloves. As far as size goes, that's all personal preference.

I ordered a complete PSA pencil barreled upper and a CMMG .22LR upper from PSA last week. The PSA had to be built (obviously) but the CMMG said it was in-stock. Two days later I get an email saying that the CMMG was not in stock after all and they will let me know when their distributor finds some more. I was not pleased at all and still have not heard a word from them. So now I have to wait for both the PSA upper and the CMMG upper.

I ordered my 300 BLK upper from PSA last thursday. It arrived today, 8 days later. That is fast considering PSA said they had a 15 day minimum for custom builds. I ordered mine with a free floating YHM hand guard.
It arrived so fast that I dont even have any ammo for it!

The last one I ordered was a PSA 14.7 middy and it took exactly 14 days but well worth the wait .that was just shy of 3 weeks ago

I got a chance to take my PSA out to the range. I had limited ammo but shot some 125 gr and 220 gr factory loads through it. Both cycled fine and locked the bolt back.
I just started hand loading but got a case stuck in the die so it came to a halt. My first loads had flat primers so I need to back off a bit.
