.223 in 5.56 Mags?
 
Are there any potential issues with .223 ammunition in my 5.56 PMAGS? Sorry if it's a dumb question, but I'm new to AR's, and don't want ANY problems that can be avoided.

Thanks in advance!

None at all. Only no-no is using 5.56 in a barrel chambered only for .223. A Wylde chamber or 5.56 can be used for either 5.56 or .223. A .223 only chamber cannot safely shoot 5.56.

Yes you will be fine! I've been buying my mags online. I thought they were a good price. I hope this helps.

In fact, I doubt you could even find a magazine that is labeled .223Remington.

No problem at all.

Like they said and Pmags are the only ones I will use.
