    So if I shoot 5.56 through it and chamber was FUBAR, what would I see? Stuck casings? Does checking with a go/no go gauge mean anything? Not that I even have .223/5.56 specific chamber gauges but I know an Alumni “with an awesome set of tools.”

    You know I got to try this now :)

    Robert,
    Well the chamber could explode in your hands… That’s the worst case. Which is why you never want to put 5.56 in a .223 chamber. The go/no go gauge only really checks headspace. Since, externally a 55.56 and .223 are the same size that won’t help you. The 5.56 has more powder and thicker brass.

    There never seems to be enough time to do it right, but there is always enough time to do it twice.

    If I’m understanding correctly, it would be the other way…….

    If you have a rifle chambered for 5.56, you can shoot 5.56 or .223.

    If it is chambered in .223, 5.56 may cause some problems.

    Biggest issue is the size of the chamber. The .223 is tighter.

    5.56 in a .223 chambered rifle could cause feeding and or extraction issues and possibly blown primers.

    A Go/No Go gauge wont tell you if your chamber is correct.

    There is a guy that runs an armorer’s course. I have read a lot of his stuff that he post on the net. When you take his course, you have to bring a complete AR. He goes through chamber reamers like crazy. Why? The majority of AR’s produced that people purchase do not have true 5.56 chambers even though they are marked as such.

    There is a reason that I constantly talk about which companies to go with when you buy an AR. this is just one of them.

    The attached picture shows the difference between the two chambers.
