223 ammo

5.56x45 ammo

.223 vs 5.56x45mm NATO

The 5.56x45mm .223 Remington, which has elements of the .222 Remington and the .222 Remington Magnum, was specifically designed and developed for the M16 service rifle, the United States military version of the AR-15 rifle. Because of the fact that brass was widely available, the 223 became popular as a civilian cartridge. Since January 2013, after political discussion regarding gun control, there is a shortage of .223/5.56 ammo in the USA.

The .223 Remington cartridge does almost have the same measurements as the 5.56x45mm NATO military cartridge and it’s loaded with a .224 inch or 5.7 mm diameter jacketed bullet. The .223 Remington and 5.56x45mm NATO differ in both maximum pressure and chamber shape. One can safely fire 223 Remington ammunition in a 5.56 mm chambered gun, although firing 5.56 mm ammunition in a .223 chamber may produce pressures in excess of even the 5.56 mm specifications.
