    Hello everyone! I definitely hope all is well. Once again I’m seeking help. I presently have my eyes on an 18 inch .223 Wylde Rifle with the 1:7 and/or 1:8 barrel twist rates. My understanding is that although it’s chambered in .223, it also fires 5.56 rounds, and that’s interesting. I’m reading a lot about this gun being very, very accurate. What I need clarification with is; does the accuracy aspect of this firearm only pertain to the .223 part of this gun, or the 5.56 aspect also? Thank you much.

    See if this helps: Bill Wylde of Greenup, Illinois compared the two cartridges and changed the chamber of the rifle's barrel to a specification which is called 223Wylde chamber or 22 Wyldechamber. The chamber is made with the external dimensions and lead angle as found in the military 5.56×45mm NATO cartridge and the 0.2240 inch free bore diameter as found in the civilian SAAMI .223 Remington cartridge.

    .223 Wylde is 5.56 and accuracy has more to do with bullet selection than .223 or 5.56

    I'll bet you won't notice a difference. Especially since you had to ask.

    Both would be accurate in the firearm depending on grain weight, distance, wind, weather, barrel length, atmosphere, etc. and most of all your skill. There is s lot of variables in your question. Though for the most part if you're just getting into the AR then you wont really notice a difference like Popeye said. Not saying this is bad, just this will be a learning experience for you. You must start somewhere to get experienve.

    Okay, thanks everyone; I’ve been enlightened by all of your responses. I am just getting started. I’d been shooting raggedy until I got a good scope, and dropped a Geissele Super Semi-Automatic Enhanced SSA-E in. I began calling the shots. But I’ve got an awful lot to learn. The firearm I’m shooting is chambered in 5.56 with a rifle length gas system and a 1:7 barrel twist rate. I was firing 62 gr .5.56 rounds. I’ll be using 62 gr, 69 gr, 75 gr and 77 gr .223 and 5.56 rounds with it and the Wylde,
