Can someone explain to me the diff between .223 ammo that I use in my RRA AR-15and NATO 5.56 ammo. From what I understand it can't be used in an AR-15???

It depends on your chamber. If you have a .223 chamber I wouldn't fire 5.56 ammo through it. If you have a 5.56 chamber you can use .223 and 5.56.

The difference is .223 is loaded to SAAMI specs and 5.56 is loaded hotter NATO spes and could KB a .223 chamber

There's always the Ammo Oracle for questions like this.
