Welcome Powersauce.
Keep the good stuff flowing by posting up whatever cool, useful of fun stuff you might find in your own travels.

Odds are if you find it interesting then atleast 20 other Gunatics will too. :D

Welcome aboard!

Pardon my asking, but what, exactly, in the name of Zeus' bunghole IS "power sauce"?

My best guess is that it's either something from GNC, or something that should not be mentioned in mixed company...

Peace,
Hans

5.56 is basically 223 Remington but is often made with thicker brass so it wont always interchange in guns with really tight target chambers.

Would the 223 ammo have no problems being fired from the 5.56 barrel or chamber?

No but you might have trouble firing 5.56 in a 223 chamber

It can cause a problem, with the brass stretching. I heard of it but never experienced it until this morning. I finally got my AR together and tested both uppers yesterday, 1 is RRA in 556 nato the other is Fulton in 556 Fulton.. I ran a bunch of new brass, hand loaded 223 through them and they worked fine initially When i went reload this morning a lot of the brass just didn't "feel" right. Upon further inspection, about 3/4 of the rounds fired throgh the 556 nato chamber were stretched BADDDD. I cut some of the worst ones and in spots there was only 3/1000th of brass left.

Yeah the looser chamber will stretch it when it fires.
