Does the BCG not come in contact with the magazine in the AR realm?
I have about 40 metal Center Industries Corp magazines. They make the mags for the military and police. Never had a single issue out of a single one of them.
Make a trip through southern Michigan and I'll give you a few.

I don't shoot my AR from the bench, I always shoot it standing or locked in the sling.

I tried PMags because EVERYBODY was harping them just before the last election. I didn't like them then, and my opinion hasn't changed to be honest.

I don't like plastic, especially on a field ready weapon, and these were no different.

I'll send you a couple to try. You like them, you keep them and buy me replacements. You hate them, you send them back and you are out nothing.

So the 5.56 upper will handle the pressures of the .223, and not the other way around, correct?

Why do they bother manufacturing .223 uppers?

That is correct.

I have no idea why you would want a .223 only when a 5.56 will shoot both.

Chamber overall dimensions are slightly different. Yes, the 5.56 will handle a .223 load without issue, but it will not perform at the most accurate level from a "target" stand point.

The civilian .223 is far more common than military 5.56mm, but I can see no downside to buying a 5.56mm rated chamber to be honest.

The "Wylde" chamber is some asshat engineer's attempt to blend the both of the specs for these cartridges and keep their company out of court. Wylde offers none of the accuracy benefits and all the slop of doing a job half assed.

You are not the only one who buys ammo first! I bought four boxes of American eagle .223 and one pmag before I purchased anything else.
