yes you can use a .22 brush - they also make .223 brushes but they are probably the same size. Either will work fine.

Well,

Yes it will work...

5.56 is .224..

Also look into a bore snake...

And don't run a brush against the barrel lapping.

Only brush from chamber and pull out the en of the rifle.

Forgive my ignorance but what is barrel lapping? Googled it but it referred to the process and not the definition.

Dewey brushes are oversized - measures approx .24 inches. Using an oversized brush will help get all the debris out.

What's this about running against the lapping? I'm guessing you mean against the rotation of the rifling. If the brush is softer than the barrel (nylon or brass versus steel) and you're using a common cleaning rod that is designed to rotate with the rifling, where is the problem? Just wondering as this is the first I've ever heard anything about that.
