223 Rem

223 Remington-5.56x45 NATO

The 223 Remington is one of the most popular and widely available cartridges in the world. Remington Arms introduced the cartridge to the shooting community in early 1964 and very shortly afterwards the cartridge was adopted by the United States military department as the official cartridge of the armed forces. A few years later the cartridge was standardized by NATO as the 5.56x45 NATO cartridge which has slightly different cartridge dimensions and pressure parameters than the .223 Remington and shooters are cautioned to use only 223 Remington ammo in their firearm unless it is specifically chambered for the 5.56x45 military round. The 223 Remington is a light recoiling easy to shoot cartridge suitable for short range varminting and hunting of small game and can be used for self defense situations when required. In recent years the 223 has been loaded with heavier bullets and is popular for longer range shooting and various rifle competition matches. The ammunition is reasonably priced and available from many sources.
