It's a guy thing...like the fish you caught was about 9 inches meaning just under 7, and the girl you dated last was a 10 meaning she was ugly as a toad and then there's...oh nevermind..

Armalite has a tech note that talks about using the Wylde chamber in their stainless match barrels for the AR-15.

I have read elsewhere here that the bullet diameter and overall cartridge length is identical in both 5.56 and .223 Win, it is only the pressures that differ. If the COL is the same how would the bullet engage the rifling differently?
