Since 5.56 Nato is unsafe to shoot in a Rifle chambered for .233

Are most people buying their AR's in 5.56 chamber and then using whatever ammo they can get their hands on ?

Are there any negatives to shooting .223 in a 5.56 chamber ?


Like most Americans i am freaked out that we have a Collectivist Prez now and I have to jump in with very little gun knowledge.


Iam looking for a SHTF Scenario AR-15

Probably something I can use for Mid range and also have a Large Scope I can swap out via the Rail for distance shots.

Not really..... Some may say that accuracy is affected, but most would never know the difference. The 5.56 NATO chambers are a little looser and that's why they can shoot both.

Out of @1000 rds for my AR and Mini14, all but 80 are of the .223 variety. I have looked up the specs and there is only about 30fps difference between the two.
