I don't have much experience with FeynCalc (I hope this will change soon), maybe that is why I don't understand why should I use DeclareNonCommutative[L, R]. I mean, L and R are just abbreviations for internal FeynCalc objects (I was using SetDelayed in my definitions of AmpSquare).

I checked that with your tip it works correctly, but, to be honest, the fact that Res2 still depends on chiral projectors is even more strange.

Best regards,
Ula
