5.56mm NATO vs .223 Remington

Adam Scepaniak

Hello everyone! I'm the C.M.O. and Manager for The Guns and Gear Store of Rogers and Waite Park, MN. Also, I'm a Smith & Wesson Certified Armorer, Glock Certified Armorer, a guest writer for Sierra Bullets, an avid pistol shooter, reloader, and have an addiction to classic double-action Smith & Wesson and Colt revolvers. I love the challenge of hunting different game whether its elk, black bear, feral hogs, whitetail deer, or prairie dogs. What can I say? I love my firearms, the great outdoors, and I have a wonderful family to do all of this with!

    One issue I have with this, S.A.A.M.I has never rated the 5.56mm. I just double checked their website, http://www.saami.org, to confirm. The military doesn’t rate the pressure for the 5.56 in psi, they rate it in CUP. So you can do an approximation on the 5.56’s max psi but it’s still just a guess. I’ve never seen, nor has anyone ever been able to show me, a 223 that has been blown up by factory 5.56 ammo. Other than that, good article.

    The differences between .223 Remington and 5.56mm NATO have been hashed out many times on the internet. Unfortunately, many of the facts that are often thrown around are simply what someone has heard from someone else, leading to a lot of misinformation being accepted as gospel.

  19. jblovers says:

    NATO include equal lethality, half the mass and volume, reduced recoil and signature, better penetration of metal plates, flatter trajectory and shorter time of flight out to 700 meters, weapons chambered for it are lighter and better hit probability.

  20. gramm45 says:

    The specification included a Remington-designed bullet and the use of IMR4475 Powder which resulted in a muzzle velocity of 3,250 feet per second and a chamber pressure of 52,0si.
