The 5.56×45mm NATO (official NATO nomenclature 5.56 NATO) is a rimless bottlenecked intermediate cartridge family developed in Belgium by FN Herstal.

Out of curiosity, what covers/wraps are you running on your rifle silencers? Thanks.
So, here's hoping my work and family life settles down to the point that I can get back into varmint hunting relatively soon. On that score, I have been working on a semi-auto, .223 / 5.56㎜ project rifle for some time now. Pics shall be posted soon. It is, essentially, done except for the...
