    Some think it "doesn't matter", but there are actually subtle differences in .223 cal and 5.56mm NATO---they ARE NOT one in the same, but so many use them interchangeably. As such, the answer to this poll depends on the weapon used to fire the round. I've never seen a rifle marked as chambered for ".223 or 5.56 NATO", nor will you see factory ammunition marked as both. It's one or the other.

    Won't type it all here, but it's worth a read, if for no other reason to know the trivia so many don't know.
