    Ar noob here; you can shoot a .223 in a gun chambered in 5.56, right? So how is it any different than the .223 wylde?

    • Mark N.

      You cannot shoot 5.56 in a .223 barrel, only .223 in a 5.56 barrel, because the chambers and bullet casings are slightly different and the 5.56 is a higher pressure round. The .223 Wylde is a special “match” chamber that was designed to a tighter tolerance and a greater strength than a standard .223 barrel, and can shoot either round. It is generally advertised as permitting greater accuracy.

        Oh, ok thanks

        .223 only in a .223 barrel.

        5.56 and .223 in a 5.56 barrel.

        5.56 and a .223 in a .223 wylde barrel

        I don’t get why SAAMI/CIP don’t change the standardized .223 Rem chamber to .223 Wylde to get rid of all these issues entirely.

    Boy, when I was barrel shopping, the sources (including Wilson) were perpetually out of stock in the length, twist and chamber I was looking for–as well as most alternates. And now they want to put out complete uppers? I wish they would concentrate on just making more barrels. Or is that a marketing thing?
