    Anyone use a YHM Mod2 billet upper for a build yet. Bought one from OpticsPlanet for my 8.5in 300blk SBR but when if got to me it had a huge gash in the aluminum and lots of scratches. Already shipped back for an exchange for another, just wondering if anyone had used it yet?

    I spend more time in this one at the moment since most of my latest builds have been in the platform. The "last thing you bought" thread is a pretty cool place to find/share deals as well.
    I'm too broke to go into the 1911 thread.:(

    Yankee Hill Machine is usually pretty good with their quality control and product function. You may have received a used one on accident, or was the package damaged? That certainly is atypical of them.

    There was a slight break in the plastic it was wrapped in, but it was no where near where the gash was. The plastic seemed to be pretty thick, it had the YHM sticker on it. I shipped it back the day i got it, back on Dec. 23, did not get back to OpticsPlanet until Jan 9th, and now I have to wait longer because of course its return season :annoyed::facepalm:
    Purchased it back on Dec. 9th, took forever because I payed with paypal, to cover my ass of course, but paypal wouldn't allow OP to ship until 2 of my 3 items were in stock, what a pain. And the anodizing was not what i expected compared to my JoeBobOutfitters spartan billet lower. I know, two different manufactures, but it just didn't feel right. I may just cerakote the whole build once everything is in.

    American Quality is pretty good stuff. I've been shooting it for years. They're owned by Federal, so their quality standards are high. I don't shoot .223, I shoot 5.56 but I see deals on these occasionally.

    Nice
    For the sake of knowing - why do you prefer the 5.56 over the .223?

    Ballistic coefficients are better with higher pressures, as is terminal velocity. I shoot coyotes and they simply perform better at extended ranges. I reload also, so I can customize my pressures and 5.56 have better cases for this. Downside is you can't reload as many times as the brass is more rigid.
