    Hey Zak,

    Just a quick question, Is there any issues running a .22LR can (Gemtech Alpine) on an AR-15 that's utilizing a .223 upper with a .22LR drop in bolt conversion.

    I just want to make sure the slightly larger bore of the .223 upper won't create baffle strikes or anything.

    Thanks

    Should be fine, just make sure the bullets are going straight (.223 bores are looser than .22LR bores)
