5.56x45mm NATO & .223 Remington

One of the most common examples of interchangeability in ammunition is the relationship between the 5.56x45mm NATO and .223 Remington. The .223 Remington was the foundation for the 5.56x45mm NATO, which explains their nearly identical dimensions in terms of projectiles and casings. The key difference lies in the pressure: the 5.56x45mm NATO is a higher-pressure round compared to the .223 Remington. As a result, firearms chambered for 5.56x45mm NATO can accept .223 Remington ammunition.

However, using 5.56x45mm NATO ammunition in a .223 Remington chambered firearm is not recommended due to the increased pressure. Although most firearms are tested with overpressure loadings during manufacturing, consistently using high-pressure rounds is not advisable. Fortunately, the number of firearms chambered for 5.56x45mm NATO exceeds those exclusively chambered for .223 Remington. This means that shooters can generally use either 5.56x45mm NATO or .223 Remington ammunition safely in their firearms without concern.

Choosing 5.56 ammunition from our extensive inventory means opting for a versatile, reliable, and highly effective round. With options ranging from 5.56 bulk ammo to specialized 5.56 NATO rounds, we have all your shooting needs covered. Explore our selection today and experience the superior performance of 5.56 ammo.
