Have a PSA standard mid length, a Phase 5 Tactical Enhanced (not full auto) BCG, and never once had a single problem with anything. have shot full auto with a slidefire multiple times and ran some tac drills at a high pace. Also the regular plink. Probably 2000 rounds through it. I can't for the life of me figure out why people would buy anything else for 700$. I hear DPMS, the M&P Sport, and Bushmaster carbons breaking all the time. I really don't get it. Why buy one of those? And I understand if Tula or Wolf doesn't run well in your own rifle, but people piss me off by saying don't use it in you rifle. Just because it didn't work in yours doesn't mean it wont work in mine. Just because it runs like a Ducati in mine doesn't mean you won't have problems. Shoot it and see. And for the record, the one and only FTF I've ever had in my rifle was Remington UMC BRASS. Go figure. I don't judge them on that one round though.

My DPMS runs tul ammo no problems probably around 1000 rounds of it thru my rifle.

I've actually noticed that it is consistently more accurate then a lot of the brass I've shot thru it (from a bench) for example: Independence 5.56, Remington UMC, PMC Bronze, are the 3 that I've used that were consistently less accurate than tul ammo.

It does void the DPMS warrenty but that doesn't concern me I've already swapped the internals so its no longer a DPMS so they wouldn't touch it anyway.

It went from a panther to a mutt! Lol

Default Steel Cased 223

I used steel cased Wolf 223/556 for many years in many different brands of AR 15"s and never had a single problem other than it tens to be dirty and not very accurate.

was in the military for years, they won't buy steel case, wolf makes steel case for 5.56 and that is sometimes problems.
