Here's a question I have never been able to get a definitive expert answer to:Recommend not to assume. Get a Go/NoGo gauge set.
If anyone knows for absolute certain from personal AR building experience what is best to do, please let me know. Thanks!If you are building an AR in which you will regularly use both .223 and 5.56 ammo... which set (or sets) of Go/No-Go gauges should you buy? .223 only? 5.56 only? Or do you need to buy both sets... .223 and 5.56?
Thank you. I'll check the markings. I can't imagine that I would have bought a .223-only upper or barrel, but who knows. It was a while back that I bought them.To make things simple... if you have a barrel marked 5.56 use 5.56 gages. You will be able to safely shoot both 5.56 and .223 ammo.
