    Another noob question..

    First of all you guys/gals on here are great. I have learned a lot from you all. I just bought a del-ton ar-15 today. I was told i can shoot .223 rounds. It is chambered for 5.56, according to the stamp on mag well. Was I told a load of bull or is it possible or more importantly safe. Thanks for all the good advice and opinions.

    That is fine.

    .223 cannot shoot 5.56
    5.56 can shot either

    5.56 has a higher pressure than .223, so yes .223 can be shot from a 5.56 weapon, but not reversed, it would be unsafe.
