If most of my shooting is with 223 match ammo, which chamber would it give higher accuracy ?

Please advise.

.223 chamber?

.223 chamber?

indeed...

All the others are compromises for 5.56 and/or reliability, sacrificing accuracy (if only a bit) to get there.

If I choose 223 chamber then my ammo choice will be restricted to 223 ammo.

I'm thinking about Wylde or Match 5.56 because I don't want my rifle to be restricted to 223.

But you said .223 match ammo, which makes us believe your trying for the most accuracy. So in that case get the .223. However if you go for the Wylde Chamber you get a happy (debatable) medium between the loose 5.56 chamber and the tighter .223 .

If most of my ammo are mk262 and BH 223 75gr BTHP, which chamber would it be more appropriate ?

The 5.56. I wasn't aware they made .223 Mk262 ammo. What type of shooting are you going to be doing?

I'd get the Wylde, but which chamber you get (Wylde vs 5.56) isn't going to have a huge impact for shooting 75gr+. It's going to feed in either one.

I'd be more concerned about getting a quality barrel with good twist rate (between 1:7 and 1:8).

IN my service rifle chamber, I will be shooting 77 grain bullets seated to the magazine length for 200 and 300 yards. For 600 yards, I will be using 80+ grains for single load. It doesn't matter to me which chamber I have.

Actually, I'm debating myself to pick either a SPR with Wylde or a Recce barrel.

From your advices, I decided to go with the Recce.

Thank you all.

Are you referring to a Noveske RECCE? Their CL barrels are not as accurate as their SS, which aren't as accurate as other maker's SS barrels.

No, Noveske is too rich for my blood. I went with BCM recce 410 SS.

Got it. Nice choice. Their SPR Is great, too. Sabre makes very nice barrels.

I have two service rifles I use for competition. One is a custom rifle with a Krieger barrel. It has Krieger's "5.56 NATO Match" chamber. My other is an off the shelf RRA NM A2. The fired cases (chambers) are dimensionally identical ( +- .0015) in every respect.

get the wylde chamber, unless you plan on only shooting .223 match ammo.

It looks like that the chamber differences does not have the major impact on accuracy, or if not many really care.

I guess the NATO match chamber is more robust, accommodating longer bullets in 80/90 grain range. I'd leave the 223 chamber for varmint dedicated rifles.
