How is this different from a 5.56 nato or 223 match?????????????and is it any good.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 4:25:37 PM EDT
There are 3 chambers, .223 SAAMI, WYLDE, and 5.56

the .223 is the tightest chambering

the 5.56 is loose

and the wylde is in between.

what des all this mean? 5.56 chamber will shoot 5.56 and .223 ammo, and so will wylde.

the SAAMI spec chamber is used for .223 only.

you want the wylde or 5.56...

No complaints with my RRA thus far. I've shot both .223 and 5.56 with no problems at all.

If your barrel is marked 5.56, it is a 5.56 chamber.

Wylde is the loosest chamber. Well, at least where it needs to be. And tight where it needs to be for accuracy.

I've been nickel-and-diming my 20" RRA Wylde at 100 yards so I'd say it’s good.

so in a 223 match reciever, can you shoot xm 855 or xm193?

No.

So, Wylde chambers are more common on NM rifles. (I think)

No; XM193 & M855 are pure 5.56mm, so you CANNOT fire them from SAAMI spec'd barrels. SAAMI Spec'd barrels are exclusively for .223 Remington.
