I just received my Midway order.  I ordered 6 Lancer FDE 3x10, 3x30 in 5.56.
I thought I ordered 3 Lancer 3x30 5.56 Smoke.  but they are 300 AAC Blackout.

So I am batting .667

What is different?  
What is the compatibility with 5.56 or anything else?

I believe there is a slight difference in the feed lips. I would think they would work although I’ve never tried. Try jacking some rounds through.

They should work ok with 5.56.

That's my understanding as well, they work fine with 5.56. I wouldn't worry about it.
