Who shoots 5.56 from .223 barrels/chambers?

I've heard both sides of the argument, read the ammo-oracle and still haven't found a definitve can or can't answer. Sorry for floggin the horse, but purchase of upper in a week may depend on the weath of knowlegde that pours fourth from the all knowing at AFCOM.

Sorry, not much help here, but both my Bushy and DPMS are stamped .223 and 5.56 and I shoot both loadings from each rifle.

What maker are you looking to purchase?

Tell us the options you are looking at, and that will help us tell you the answer.

Most AR chambers are able to take the 5.56 pressures. So you can use both 5.56 and .223.
