The Difference Between .223 and 5.56

Richard Johnson has written a good article for Guns and Patriots at Human Events on the dangerous differences between the calibers.

The significant difference between the .223 Rem and 5.56 NATO lies in the rifles, rather than the cartridges themselves.  Both the .223 and 5.56 rounds will chamber in rifles designed for either cartridge, but the critical component, leade, will be different in each rifle.
