AR 15 Ammunition Types

AR 15 rifles typically use .223 Remington and 5.56×45mm ammunition. But what is .223 Ammunition the difference between the two? Here at Proguns.com, we want to help you understand every aspect of your AR 15. We have compiled some information to help you decipher AR 15 ammunition.

The civilian version of the 5.56 is the .223 Remington, which is simply a longer version of the now defunct .222 Rem. Unlike the 5.56, .223 ammo is able to be safely fired from both the M16 and the civilian AR 15.

The 5.56x45mm is the U.S. military designation of ammo for their AR 15, which they renamed the M16. Although the 5.56 and the .223 have identical dimensions, the 5.56 is usually designed for higher pressures and velocities and is generally considered to be unsafe to shoot from the civilian AR 15.
