- Q & A
ARs have been gaining popular steadily for more than fifty years with the AR-15 being perhaps most popular of all. If you own an AR chambered in .223 Remington you might be wondering what the difference is between the .223 Remington and the 5.56 NATO; the difference is simply, but important. 5.56 NATO rounds are loaded to a higher internal pressure than .223 Remington rounds and their throat is a bit longer as well, which means although they’re externally identical they’re internally different. That difference could cause a catastrophic failure, so don’t use 5.56 NATO rounds in a gun chambered only for .223 Remington. When in doubt, check with the manufacturer.
These particular .223 Remington rounds weigh 77 grain making them moderately weighted for the cartridge size. At this weight these rounds are still light enough to travel at higher speeds while heavy enough to pack a slightly weightier punch on impact. These are BTHP, Boat Tail Hollow Point, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact, creating a devastating wound cavity. Their BT helps them resist cross-winds and maintain a balanced trajectory. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 2788 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1329 foot-pounds. This ammunition is good for varmints such as coyotes and can also be used for target practice.
