    pic of my kel tec su-16c

    Here are a couple of pics of my kel tec that I bought used. I've had it about 2 months and have only put 80 rounds through it. So far, so good. I added the high mount rings, cheap 3-9x32 scope, and the led light setup. Almost no recoil which is great. Now just need to save up for a AR.

    Great little rifles. Unbelievably light and shoot very well for what it is.

    Su16's are chambered in .223. They can handle 5.56 though.

    Just out of curiosity, which does it say stamped on your SU-16 rifle, "5.56mm" or ".223"? If they are really chambered in .223 Remington, it's not a safe thing to put 5.56x45 in them. .223 in a 5.56mm chamber, no problem other than a potential slight loss of accuracy.

    Very nice. I have always liked the Kel-Tec rifles. I'm thinking about getting a

    Kel-tec has stated that shooting 5.56 in them is fine. They use 5.56/.223 interchangeably on their site.

    I'll have to check, but I believe 5.56x45 chambers have about an extra 0.080" leade in them, and that the 556 brass web/wall is thicker so that there's less volume in a 556 case. 223 and 556 cases are identical in terms of outside dimensions IIRC. My understanding as a reloader was that the same charge in a 556 case could result in higher pressure than the same charge in a 223Rem case, due to the different volumes. Again IIRC, 556 chambers are rated for the extra pressure, but 223 chambers are not.

    Right, I agree that they are a different round. However, what I'm saying is that Kel-tec has said they use the term interchangeably on their site. Perhaps a bad practice, but the SU16 can easily handle 5.56. I know this from personal experience.
