My question is why you are asking this AFTER your build? Should be GTG but hey.....

I am building based on the advice of someone VERY experienced with AR's just wanting others opinions, from what I read there are NO cons at all.

Whats the purpose of the rifle for?
Is it a self defense or a rifle you are training with so you could be shooting steel case ammo?
One you are reloading to shoot for accuracy?
Plenty of variables here.

Honestly mostly a safe queen I might put 500 rounds a year thru it if I am lucky, but what I want out of it is short range shooting, nothing over 100 yards and CQB if the SHTF. And no I will not be doing any hand loads all factory loads

CCC honestly if I was going for SHTF/CQB I would have just gone 5.56 chamber over the 223 wylde.
Yes you can shoot both 5.56 and 223 in the "Wylde" chamber, but the throat being what is different in the wylde, and the 5.56 I would prefer a little wiggle room for the full function on a variety of ammo brass, steel cased, 223, etc.. I am pretty sure the "wylde" will be a bit more picky especially if you try and run Tula or Wolf steel cased ammo.
Just my .02

You should be fine. Whats the point of having it if that will be a safe queen. Guns are meant to be fired lol

Well we will definitely find out about that one because I tend to pick up whatever ammo I can so I will report back if she is picky.
