So I replaced the H2 with a carbine weight buffer and the stupid thing has run like a champ ever since. Never skipped a beat.
I've seen various reports on what runs best in the LMT SBR uppers. I run an H2 in mine since I shoot mostly 5.56.

In this case, though, the bad key meant the buffer didn't make a difference. I tried it with a C buffer, and no joy.
