Default 223 Wylde

My buddy just bought a sweet looking carbon fiber barrel that is chambered in 223 Wylde. What's the skinny on that round?

It's a hybrid chamber, between 5.56mm and .223 Remington. It'll shoot either safely. The idea is you want to safely be able to use 5.56 while still keeping a "tight" chamber for accuracy with the .223 Remington.

Many companies (Bushmaster, some RRA) use it as their standard chamber.

The 223 Wylde has slightly larger chamber body dimensions than a 5.56 nato and a proper throat diameter like a SAAMI 223 chamber.
It's literally the best of both worlds, reliable and accurate.

Here is my 223 & 5.56 chamber reamers comparison.
