Remington is coming out with a new AR-15 type of rifle chambered in the 223 and the 204. I wonder how they shoot? Dale Here is the link .http://fieldandstream.blogs.com/gunnut/2007/10/meet-the-r-15.html
No, it is based on the 222 Magnum case with a straighter, sharper shoulder. Head size is the same though.DALESCARPENTRY said:LaOtto222 . I may have just learned another thing. Is the 204 Ruger a necked down 223? By the way I have several hunderd 223 brass also. Dale
What that article didn't tell you about ammo production is that for a couple of years .223 ammo has been in short supply and voluntarily rationed for civilian use. There is a waiting list and backlog production schedules for the .223 bullet. Because of the current political problems around the World, and because War Drums are beating in the distance with a real possibility of a major breakout, every Military around the world has been buying as much .223 ammo as they can get their hands on. Which is why if your gunshop orders .223 ammo, he has a 1 year waiting period and production backlog before it arrives.LaOtto222 said:I find it interesting that in the article that Dale posted they said that the 223 is 25% of all loaded ammo that Remington is making right now.
