H2 Buffer

The other thread regarding tier one gear and necessary upgrades brought up something I was doing some reading on without conclusively coming up with an answer.

H2 buffers seem to be all the rage for hard running carbines, but the internet warriors seem to think that the gun won't run cheap civilian ammo and that mil-spec 5.56 is required.

For the basic RRA carbine for us range warriors who have one "go to" rifle is this a worthwhile upgrade or am I not going to get any sort of benefit with my occasional class and range time?

9mm Buffers in all of mine, and mine cycle Wolf.

If you are worried Spikes has a buffer thats really nice too (ST-T2).

IMHO everyone serious about AR's should have the following in theor AR bag:

Carbine
H
H1
H2
H3
9mm


Lots of people dont know about this issue:

One buffer wont solve problems, youhave to try everything to see whats truly best for your gun.

The gun runs good now with whatever I put through it so I guess I'll take the "if it ain't broke" position on it.

Is there any practical way to see if we have bolt bounce on our ARs without resorting to highspeed videography?

Not that im aware of.

I thought of offering it as a service since I have access to the gear, but things didnt work out at Scotts.

Perhaps Ill have my own gig one day and offer things like this.

I have 9mm buffers in my carbines also. I also used one in a 24" rifle with a collapsing stock with no issues due to the rifle gas system. It now has a Spike's 6oz buffer and runs fine.

what would be the negative of the bolt bounce.
My Stag ( before I lost it in the boating accident ) runs well and it seems the company would put good stuff in it. I'm still not sure what the heavier buffer will do for a rifle like the OP refers to.
