The 411 on Remington 223 ammo

Though the military uses 5.56×45mm NATO military cartridges, the 223 Remington cartridge became popular for civilian use because the availability of brass made it cheap to mass produce and it fit the chambering of most commercially available varmint rifles as well as the semiautomatic version of the M16, the AR-15.
