so if you shoot the 5.56 ammo in the 223 why is it such a no-no by some sources. Does the 5.56 have higher pressures?
Why can't one just ream out a 223 barrel to fit the 5.56?

With the 5.56 chamber being larger, how does that affect accuracy when the 223 is fired in a 5.56 chamber.
It would seem that the...

410 ballistics

Just to put the 410 in perspective at 100 yards the 410 energy approximately equals a 22 mag at 75n yards. Neither are good deer loads. Foot pounds of energy can be miss leading as penetration would...

410 can I use any other ammo

I have a 410 single shot 5410/22lr combo gun.
Can I use a standard pistol round such as a long colt or other ammo in the 410 barrel with IC choke.
I realize without rifling accuracy would be poor

The 223 chamber is slightly shorter than the 5.56 and caused the 5.56 bullet to "jam in a 223 chamber causing higher and dangerous pressures.
