Default Bolt Carrier Group question

Guys i need to know if .223/5.56 bolt assembly can be put in 6.8mm bolt carrier. Are those 2 calibers' bolt carriers are the same physical and spec? I was thinking the difference only the bolt carrier head which it extracts out the shell casing.
Please correct me if i'm wrong and feed me with the right answer.

Thank you

hmm good question. i'll leave that one up to dillinger, agenttiki and c3
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.

The carriers are the same, just change the bolt to match the case head on the cartridge.
