I want to know the difference between .223 ammunition and 5.56 Nato rounds. Are they essentially the same thing? Are they interchangeable?

most ar-15 style firearms marked .223 have barrels than can handle it
and the stuff i had worked in a mini-14 just fine as well

This infers that the bullets are the same size, but the 5.56 is more powerful?
