This reminds me of when my dad's AR had a loose gas block. Might be something to poke at. Fiocchi should be quality ammo, so I'd be moderately surprised if that were the problem.

Oops, I forgot that it was just a pistol-sized buffer with that stock (I mean, "brace"). Yes, you will want an extra-strength 5.56x45 flat wire spring.

Do you reload? IMHO, 6.5 and 6 CM are too expensive to shoot regularly without doing so.

308 flat wire spring, and one of the usual heavy 9mm buffers like the Spikes ST-9X (7.7oz, IIRC).

Well, wait a second. Rem UMC does not exactly have the best rep for quality in the world. You could do worse, but this is not ammo I'd bet my life on.
