Not only are these two rounds often interchangeable and able to be shot from the same gun, their history is entwined with each other. In fact, the 5.56 NATO round didn’t come about until have the .223 was produced. In 1957, Fairchild Industries set about to create and new lightweight combat rifle. They were commissioned, along with several other groups of engineers, by the US Continental Army Command (CONARC) with a set of specific criteria that the gun and round had to meet.

These parameters included:
• .22 Caliber
• Able to exceed supersonic speeds at 500 yards
• Rifle itself could only weigh 6 lbs.
• Able to penetrate both a steel helmet and .135” steel plate at 500 yards.
• Magazine capacity of at least 20 rounds.

These specifications came as a result of the 7.62 NATO round being deemed has having too much power to be carried by infantry. In May of 1957, Eugene Stoner shot the first AR 15 design to CONARC. Through further developments, the AR-15 was transformed into the M16 rifle that is still the standard rifle for most of the American Armed forces.

Each box contains 250+ once fired brass shell casings. Will contain 5.56 mixed with 223. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. It has not been cleaned or resized and still contains the spent primer. This brass contains different manufacturer's headstamps. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.

4 of 5 Good deal, but watch for berdan primed cases April 15, 2021
Reviewer: B.L. from USA  
I'm halfway through prepping a batch of 1000, and have found 2 berdan primed cases already.  One decapping pin sacrificed, the other one  caught from the headstamp being the same as the other.

3 of 5 .223 Unprocessed January 23, 2021
Reviewer: Jim from MI  
Was glad to find some brass during these crazy times and at a decent prices. Shipping was quick and the brass seems to be in good shape. However....When they say "may contain some 556", I expected to see maybe 10 or so in the 250 that I purchased. I wasn't expecting to find 77, which is roughly 30% of the lot.  I would probably order again if I needed to but with the expectation that I'm only going to get about 60% - 70% .223.

Reviewer: Thai from PA  
Very happy with the brass.  Mixed 223/556, but easy to sort.  All brass was usable, and was packed very well.  I'm glad that I found Capital.  I've made about 4 orders from them, and they always deliver.  Price is on point too.  You have a new customer for life.
