About 5.56 Ammo

The 5.56 round was popularized by its use in the US Military in the 1960s and it continues to be used by the US and many other countries in firearms like the M16. For non-military purposes, you can use 5.56 ammo in firearms from the AR platform and also rifles like the Smith & Wesson M&P15 and the Remington Model 700 series bolt-action rifle.

Each round is 5.56 x 45 mm, which is the same dimensions as a .223 Remington round. You cannot use 5.56 ammo in a gun that’s chambered for .223 Remington, but you can use either in a firearm that’s chambered for 5.56 ammo. The 5.56 will have greater pressure than the .223 Remington and often has a higher velocity. If you have any questions about 5.56 ammunition, stop by and we’ll help you out.
