Welcome aboard!

From what I understand, they will build it how you want it. Mine has the Wylde chamber (my rifle is the 2001 LEGP) and I have never had a problem with it. FWIW, my rifle is no range or safe queen either - I have been hard on it and it has never failed, even with crap ammo and little maintenance in a VERY dusty, dirty, and sometimes windy environment (I pushed it pretty hard for a while because I was worried about the Wylde chamber). I doubted it would hold up, but it has never failed me.

Generally RRA uses the Wylde chamber their non-LE rifles. The Wylde chamber specs falls about in the middle of the .223 remington and 5.56 Nato. Supposedly the Wydle chamber aids in reliability, yet improves upon accuracy.

From what I gathered when I asked RRA they told me the Wyld chambers are generally on their DCM and varmint bull barrels which are made by Wilson.

All RRA stainless barrels have the Wylde chamber.

I recently purchased a Standard A4 20". The website said it had a Wylde chamer, but the reciever is marked 5.56.

Thanks for all the responses mine has a 16 inch Wilson chrome moly R-4 barrel, marked 5.56 on the receiver, so it's guessing for me so far, it does not mention on thier web site which have the Wylde,

I'll post tomorrow after I put it to the test

According to the RRA website only the Standard, National Match and Varmint models normally come with the Wylde chamber. All the other models are listed as 223/5.56 NATO.

If their website is correct or not is another story.

I had a Dennys gun 16 recon stailess barrel with the wylde chamber and it ate EVERYTHING I put through it with no problem, in fact it seemed to shoot better than my 24 bull barrel varmint gun shooting the same ammo.

.223 and 5.56 NATO are about as opposite as chambers get. Which are .223 and which are 5.56 NATO?

I don't make the news, just report it....

So which is it because .223 and 5.56 NATO are two different chambers. Im suspecting 5.56 in newer rifles but older ones had the tight .223 chambers? Is RRA so stupid they dont know the difference?

The Wylde Chamber will allow you to shoot both .223 and 5.56 through it. If a rifle is chambered for 5.56 you can safely shoot .223 through it. Such is not the case with a .223 chamber. From what I understand, the 5.56 chamber is a bit longer (requiring more headspace than a .223). The 5.56 is loaded a bit hotter and develops more pressure.

DevL, why on earth would you assume RRA is "stupid"?
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 8:38:50 AM EDT
I can only speculate that the chamber when listed as .223/5.56 is a 5.56 chamber. You can shoot both in the 5.56 but only .223 in a .223 chamber.
