    If you wanted to fit in with the crowd and buy an AR 15 what chamber would you get? 223? 5.56 or 223 wylde?

    I would get 5.56 so I could shoot either 5.56 or .223 with no worries.

    I am in the process of putting together a couple of 223 Wylde ARs. 5.56 can certainly handle them both but the Wylde is supposed to do that and give better performance.

    Wylde, of course.
    That's why the .223 Wylde chamber was created. Some think it's a caliber. Lol

    Me either, but after building so many .223/5.56 ones I decided to do something a little different!

    Mine is AR-10 .308, LOVE IT!! Had to get rid of my "bump stock" when they outlawed them! but that's ok, the .308 has so much recoil I couldn't keep it from climbing up into the trees!! they are HEAVY!!
