.223 Remington / 5.56 Nato

Buy .223 Remington / 5.56 Nato rifles online Europe. Remington .223 rifles began in 1957 when the U.S. Continental Army Command launched a project to create a small-caliber, high-velocity firearm together with an innovative cartridge. .223 Remington served as a base for a NATO standard 5.56x45mm caliber, which means they should be similar in one way or another. And while externally they are almost indistinguishable, it would be a grievous mistake to use them as interchangeable.

.223 Remington Ammo for sale turned into one of the most widely-used firearm cartridges. Some may say its popularity is overshadowed by its close relative, 5.56x45mm, but Remington .223 semi-automatic rifles remain a common choice. The initial cartridge that was developed by Remington during the project bore the name .222 Special. But since several .222 cartridges were in development, participants needed to differentiate them. Thus, .222 Special became .223 Remington. The cartridge was tested together with an ArmaLite-produced AR-15 – both prototypes showed exemplary results. After rigorous tests that lasted for about three years, ArmaLite AR-15, chambered in .223 Remington, was recommended for adoption.
