Reloading 223/5.56

I'm considering purchasing 223 dies from Dillon directly. Are they currently backordered or are they in good supply.

Second, I am reloading for an AR 15. I've read that there could be issues with CCI primers feeding. I suspect that's because they were using crimped brass or a light hammer spring. I will be swaging my casings so I don't think that this would be a problem.

223 carbide dies are on backorder for 1-2 weeks. Steel dies are in stock.

Ditto; "Well worth the wait".  The Carbide 5.56/223 size die feels like your bushing soft butter into it.  If your running 100's or 1000's of rounds, it;s worth every penny.
