C'mon bro.., you don't have to share if ya don't want to.
Denny, it seems the our friend is loseing his mind. Now he has moved into
total denial. He has forgotton that the machine has a long history in this
group, that there have been a couple of pictures posted of the machine. More
importantly he has forgotton to look where it was last seen, in the back of
HIS truck enroute to a meet with Red. I think he finally might have either
tipped over the edge or gotton his hands on some real good shit.<BFG>
I believe the nato is .556. As I understand it there is a small difference
between the two, not much but some. Anyway, I know that the bushmaster will
chamber and fire both .223 and .556 with no problem. I don't know about the
I'm simple minded, I guess...
We were issued .556 for the 16's and a .223 was a 22 magnum for close work with
the ruger revolver... lol
I haven't had a use for either round for almost 40 years... *groan*
All I know is we fired .223 in '16's and one guy fired the 5.56 in his
Remington, or so he said . . .he was the E-7 Sergeant in charge of the
rifle ranges with a munitions MOS. I worked with him daily for a month and
he is an honest person.
As far as I'm concerned, discussion over. You do what you want.

Gee, how many times have I been chewed out for saying that very thing .
"I hope so 'cause in this case your info could get a person hurt."
Ya know, Roy, I think an E-7 with some 21 years of service time in
armament just might know what he's talking about. How much time did you
say you have?
Well, I would say the people that manufacture the ammo would know even more
then your E-7, and they state that the two rounds ARE different, that a .223
can be fired in a 5.56mm barrel, but that firing a 5.56mm cartridge in a
.223 barrel could result in "gun functioning issues", and declare it to be
"an unsafe ammunition combination".
