    The picture is of 5.56 ammo.

    They are not the same as .223 ammo.

    5.56 is loaded to NATO specs, .223 is to SAMI. Major difference is case pressure and leade. Some .223's work fine with 5.56, some do not.

    80 MILLION gun owners didn't shoot anyone today, a few criminals did!

    Problem is: a lot of people really do think they're the same and if shot in the wrong firearm there could be a KB. Might not ever happen but I sure wouldn't want it to happen to me, friends or loved ones!

    But by the same token I have some .357 SIG that is made from necked down .45's. That's a no no too, but at the time I bought the reloads I didn't know the difference and so far I haven't had a KB from it, but.............
