5.56 and 223 cal. are the same cartridge...........

if it is a 223 cal, then yes

probably years. shoot it, if it fires it's good

Of course you can. The .223 is the civilian version of the 5.56x45mm NATO ammunition. They are slightly different but the difference is constantly neglected due to the fact that it is safe to shoot. Hope this helps.

NEVER FIRE AMMUNITION IN A WEAPON THAT IS NOT CHAMBERED FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Danger, Danger, Danger

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.

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

Only if it is marked ".223 Remington" on the barrel.

Stored in moderate temperatures and low humidity, ammunition can be stored for decades.

Yes - this is the same ammunition No, it is NOT the same ammunition. The AR-15 has a 5.56x45 chamber, and it will be marked "5.56" on the barrel. Many imported firearms which have a 5.56 chamber will be marked .223 in order to be classed as "sporting rifles" which may be imported. The .223 Remington cartridge may be safely cycled in a 5.56x45 chamber; the 5.56x45 cartridge is not safe to cycle in a dedicated .223 Remington chamber. When it doubt, always check with the manufacturer - they are the most authoritative people to talk to on these matters. The civilian .223 Remington and military 5.56x45 cartridges are similar in dimension, but differ in case thickness, chamber pressures generated, and neck angles. The chamber pressures of the 5.56 greatly exceeds that of the .223 Remington, and the different neck angle can prevent proper headspacing from being achieved in a .223 chamber.

.223 Calibre although .223 Will fit on a 5.65 mm, a 5.65 mm Will not fit in a .223 calibre chamber.

Ar-15 for one. You can use .223 ammo in 5.56 barrells as well.

.223 Remington ammunition can be fired safely in a 5.56x45 rifle; 5.56x45 ammunition cannot be safely fired in a .223 rifle. In the case of some partially imported rifles, they are marked .223 Remington in spite of having 5.56 chambers. This is done for compliance with BATFE laws regarding importation of certain firearms types. If in doubt about the compatibility, call the manufacturer - they're the ones who would know best.

Let's see... Remington makes a variant of the 700 chambered in .223, I believe the Ruger M77 is available in .223... not 100 percent certain about the Winchester Model 70, but I believe it is or was available in .223. .223 Remington ammunition can also be cycled through rifles chambered for 5.56x45, such as the AR-15, Ruger Mini 14 Ranch (the Target models have a dedicated .223 chamber), variants of the Daewoo K2, Kel Tec SU17, some AK-based rifles, etc.

While outwardly they appear the same and they both use the same bullet, the 5.56 has thicker case walls and a smaller capacity for powder. The 5.56 is the standard NATO round and guns chambered in 5.56 will shoot .223 with no problem at all. The opposite is not always true because the 5.56 will produce higher chamber pressure and it's not always safe in all guns chambered in .223. Also, you cannot use .223 reloading dies for 5.56 brass. The brass will not cycle through the die at all.

If it is one of the recent Colt .22LR AR15 rifles, then the answer is no - they are completely different internally.

Yes, they do shoot the same projectile although the 22-250 takes a heavier charge of the same powder over the .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.

Most AR-type rifles are chambered for the 5.56x45 cartridge - the standard cartridge used by NATO (and also by several non-NATO) forces for their military's assault rifles. They can also chamber the .223 Remington cartridge, although a firearm with a dedicated .223 Remington chamber should not be used for military 5.56x45 ammunition.

WSSM= Winchester Super Short Magnum... .224 is diamater of the bullet. it is very fast!!!
