well im building a cmmg 10.3" SBR and i was wondering if i need to get a H buffer if i dont NEED one is it a good idea though?
describe "function better".It will probably function better with an H or H2 than a CAR buffer.

Does the recoil of your sbr feel overly sharp?
this is a copy and paste from another post i did regarding buffer selection:
(the buffer that your AR will run)
depends on a lot of factors. BCG drag, buffer spring rate and age, barrel quality/gas seal, gas port size, FSB fit and gas seal, etc etc...
any one of those, or a combination of those things may preclude the use of a heavy buffer.
TO determine the buffer your carbine SHOULD be running, do the following.
dont clean your carbine for at least 500 rds.
take one of each weight buffer to the range, carbine, H, H1, H2, H3, 9mm
Load single rounds of WOLF in mags, and test with at LEAST 20 rounds for each buffer. just one round per mag, testing to see that the carbine locks back after that shot every time.
Whatever the HEAVIEST buffer is, that will STILL Reliably lock back on an empty mag, in a dirty carbine, shooting underpowered ammo........
is the buffer you want.
a good majority of quality carbines will stop at an H2 buffer. "commercial" type AR's may need a heavier buffer due to large (non spec) gas port size.
