Go with a CMMG for like $50 more you get all the mil-spec goodies. The 16" midlength will eat anything and everything you throw at it. Carbine gas system will generally not do well with Wolf and Radway Green before the first 500 rounds. A middie will eat everything brand new out of the box. Of course, if you want to go long a rifle length gas system is flawless.

I had a Rock River with a chrome lined barrel that ate the stuff like candy.

Pretty sure that if you use steel in your CMMG...it voids the warranty........

Any upper should eat steel cased ammo without a problem. My friend's Stag cycles the Wolf steel cased just fine. He shot about 300 rds of it last time we were out, and he had very few issues considering it was a brand new rifle (never fired before). I believe the feeding issues were caused by the mags anyway. My Bushmaster didn't have a single problem, whatsoever!

+1. None of mine have ever had the problem either.
The trick is to scour the chamber really well after shooting any of the laquer cased Wolf stuff before you start shooting any brass case stuff. Evidently the laquer left in the chamber makes the brass cases stick when they expand in the chamber. They did a little work in the issue at the box of truth website.

CMMG, LMT, RRA, POF,

I know these uppers will cycle steel ammo with no issues.

My stag 2h feeds wolf no problem. I've used the polymer coated exclusively, however.

I sell Rock River uppers and I can even make the M203 cut that you desire on the barrel.
Of course if you are looking at mid-length uppers, which you should be, NONE of them will come with an M203 cut.
That's going to be a custom deal no matter what.

Only if you are stupid and say, "I was shooting wolf went my AR when kaboom." If they ask just say it was remington or something.
