I'd say that whoever told you that must have been doing it wrong. My first effort at .223 worked great. They fed and cycled fine in my AR and they easily cut group sizes nearly in half compared to PMC gold.
Assuming one gets the process correct, .223 isn't that hard. If you've never worked with bottle neck cartridges, be sure to read the applicable section of your reloading manual.
There are some differences but nothing difficult.
The hardest part of reloading for .223/5.56 is consistently finding components.
