The AR-15 is one awesome rifle, and there’s just not much more fun on a weekend than packing up your gear and heading for the range – or your favorite outdoor shooting spot. If your gun is chambered in .223 Remington, you might have questions about its compatibility with 5.56 NATO. Although the two cartridges do appear to be identical from the outside looking in, there are important differences. The 5.56 NATO is loaded to a significantly higher internal pressure, and the chamber leade is also a different length. Firing a 5.56 round through a gun chambered specifically in .223 can be catastrophic. When in doubt, call the manufacturer.
These .223 rounds are lightweight at just 55 grain and will zip towards your target at lightning speed. They’re Hollow Points and begin to expand immediately upon impact, mushrooming as they penetrate while simultaneously slowing down to create a devastating wound cavity. Because they slow down as they expand they aren’t prone to over-penetrating like target rounds are, making them exactly what you want for hunting and self-defense purposes. Of course, you can also use them for target practice because it’s a wise idea to train with a variety of ammunition.
