    SL8-6 chambered also for 5.56?

    To those of you who have an SL8-6, does this rifle uses only .223? I have an AR15 bushmaster and i know i can use either a .223 or a 5.56 but i'm not sure about the SL8-6.
    By the way, how many of you choose to use 5.56 vs .223? and which one is the better ammo for the AR15 in your experience. TIA!

    Check out this link that BAC posted it on a previous post...good info to start the decision process.

    If your barrel has 5.56 or nato on it then you are ok with the 5.56 or 223 If it says 223 then no to 5.56.

    I have milsurp brass that I reload but I am ok with 223 loading data.

    If the SL8-6 is the semi auto version of the G-36 I would think so.

    I would think it would say it somewhere on it?
