No problem bro! Its just a habit of mine searching for discount codes whenever i shop online on anything. If we are allowed to save money... Y not right? .
Make sure you are have some patience. Spikes leadtime is about 6-10 weeks. Thats what i been told by their customer service about my order which i placed a week ago.

The way I understand it, a .223 barrel isn't designed for the greater pressures created by firing a 5.56 round. You can do a .223 round in a 5.56 barrel, but shouldn't do it the other way around. Probably won't blow on the first round, but eventually you'll have issues. When all else fails, check the markings on the barrel if you aren't sure.
