Will a 5.56 NATO chambered gun shoot a .223 Rem?
I'm expecting a reply. AR n00b.
Yup. Not the other way around though.
Yeah, but an upper marked 5.56 and it'll shoot .223
Like the other guys said:
A 5.56 rifle/barrel will handle 5.56 and .223
A .223 chamber will handle .223
Some .223 chambers will be OK with 5.56, but those are the exception, and not to be counted on.
5.56 can handle both, .223 can only handle .223
Sweet. 5.56 upper for me.
