223 wylde?

6 posts in this topic

The Wylde chamber was designed to safely shoot both 223 and 5.56. You originally found it in many match barrels but it has gained popularity across the board. I have an ArmaLite chambered in Wylde and it is the most accurate rifle I own in that cartridge.

Thank you that explains it all very plainly and easy to understand. As it stands now I'm good to go with 5.56 chamberings in my ar15's all I want to make sure is I can hit center mass on silhouettes.

This helped me clear up the confusion for a friend when he didn't understand the difference.

My wife's AR15 is a 223 Wylde chambering, and I haven't found anything yet to not like.

The necks look like they have been blown out...
