you can fire both 5.56 and .223 ammo in a rifle chambered in 5.56...but not the other way around! In a rifle marked .223, you should fire .223 ammo only

if it is a 223 cal, then yes

Yes it does, unless your barrel is stamped .223 .

I assume that you are referring to 5.56mm in your question?,if so yes you can shoot this ammo in your rifle.The 5.56mm is the metric designation for the .223 Remington cartridge.

.223 Remington can be cycled in a 5.56x45 rifle; 5.56x45 should not be cycled in a .223 Remington firearm.

The one issue with 5.56 in a handi rifle is the harder primers. You will almost absolutely have to install a heavier hammer spring. I have some Malaysian 5.56 and it often won't fire in the handi. I have heard the same about the Rossi single shots. As far as your concerns about pressures, the Handi handles all sorts of calibers on the same frame and barrel blank. Many of those push 65k or so. I don't worry about any difference in 223/556.

Yes there is a difference. They are physically the same size casing, but the 556 military rounds' chamber pressure is ~10,000 psi higher then 223. Military rifles generally have chambers with a different throat configuration than normal sport 223 rifles. This being said, I would not recommend shooting 556 unless your rifle was designed for the higher pressures.

Dimensionally similar, but they are not exactly the same. A firearm with a 5.56x45 chamber can accommodate the .223 Remington cartridge, but a firearm with a .223 Remington chamber cannot accommodate the 5.56x45 cartridge.

No. They have matching dimensions, but differ in other areas, such as neck angles. .223 ammunition can be safely fired in a 5.56x45mm chamber; 5.56x45 ammunition is not recommended to be used in a .223 Remington chamber.

lighter bullet and more ammo can be carried as opposed to the 30/06 or 308

yes, except 556 is written as 5.56 caliber (223) Actually, no, it isn't. Although the dimensions match, the military 5.56 cartridge differs from the civilian .223 in several aspects, such as the neck angle, casing thickness, and chamber pressure. A general rule of thumb is that .223 Remington can be fired in a 5.56 chamber, but 5.56 ammo should not be fired in a dedicated .223 chamber.

Yes the mags work with both ammos. You can not tell the difference in the two by looking at them.

The 5.56x45 cartridge is dimensionally similar to a .223 Remington. However, the two are not the same. A 5.56 chamber can safely fire .223 rounds, but a dedicated .223 chamber can't necessarily fire 5.56 cartridges safely, given the different angle of the cartridge neck, and the higher chamber pressures generated by the 5.56 cartridge over the commercial .223 round.

They are:556 = 1 x 556556 = 2 x 278556 = 4 x 139

The cartridges are similar, but not identical. Differences include:Slight variations in neck diameterSlight variations in base diameter (.378 inches for the 5.56 vs. .376 inches for the .223)Variations in the neck anglePressure rating (380 MPa for the .223 vs. 430 MPa for the 5.56)Case thicknessYou can safely fire .223 rounds in a 5.56 rifle, but it is not advisable to fire 5.56 rounds in a dedicated .223 rifle.

Yes. The Marlin model 556 is a bolt action shotgun. It has a detachable magazine which holds two rounds and one round in the pipe for a total of three rounds. It is able to shoot 3 inch ammunition.

70% of 556 is 389.2. Which means that 166.8 is 30% of 556.

why you asking me 556-thousands = 556/1000 = 0.556 as a decimal

200858 x 556 = 111677048

sqrt(556) = 23.57965 ==========Or, express as..., sqrt(556) sqrt(22 * 139) = 2sqrt(139) =========

556/68 = 8.1764705882352941 recurring (that is, 8.17647058823529411764705882352941...)

556 metres = 55,600 centimetres

It is: 556/6 = 92 with a remainder of 4

There are 10 millimetres in one centimetre. Therefore, 556 millimetres is equal to 556/10 = 55.6 centimetres.
