Default Issue with PSA 18" Rifle Length 223 Wylde Upper

PSA seems to have stopped answering emails since Christmas, so I'm hoping to get a response from PSA or anyone else who has experienced these issues.

Item 77932967

I received my new upper assembly on January 13 and shot it the next day using several different rounds. I discovered two issues:

1. IMI 5.56 55 gr: It shot and ejected normally, but I could not manually eject the round using the charging handle. It was stuck and I had to mortar it out. This happened every time using 3 different IMI rounds. No such problem with 223 rounds. Do you think this has something to do with the the Wylde barrel being out of spec for 5.56?

2. Norma USA 223 55 gr: I had consistent failure to feed. It looks like the bolt did not go all the way back. I'm using a carbine spring and buffer tube. No such issue with other 223 55 gr rounds (wolf, Pmc, IMI, American eagle) or the 5.56 IMI.
