I know its been hashed about before but I suffer from CRS (can't remember shit) so here's the question. 223 chambers and 5.56 chambers which can you shoot either in, Thanks

You can shoot .223 and 5.56mm in the 5.56mm chamber, but only .223 in a .223 chamber.

The 5.56 round is slightly larger than the .223, so a 5.56 chamber can shoot both.

Oh, my God, Joe, please read the FAQ. The rounds are the same dimensionally, it's the chambers that are different sizes.
