I did a couple of searches for this but came up empty. I notice that Rock River Arms offers several models of their upper assemblies in .223 Wylde chambering. I have never heard of this. Can someone enlighten me. Is this a special caliber round or will it handle 5.56 and .223 Rem, too? Thanks!

The link claims RRA uses the Wylde chamber in all of it's rifle's. That's incorrect. Only some of the standard/varmint/NM variants come with the Wylde. All others are 5.56.

Actually it says that RRA uses the Wylde chamber in MOST of their rifles which may be true. Thanks for the link, Hooligan22! That's a great site. If I understood the information correctly, companies like RRA use the Wylde chamber so that civilian users can shoot .223 and 5.56 ammo in their rifle more safely (i.e.- the chamber won't be as tight as a typical .223 so pressure with military surplus ammo won't be a concern PLUS the chamber will be tighter than a military chamber so it should be slightly more accurate). The best of both worlds, sort of?
