While the .223 led to the development and adoption of the 5.56 NATO in the 1960’s, it remains a popular choice among marksmen and varmint hunters for being an accurate than its loaded to higher pressures descendant and for its versatility: capable of being fired from both .223 and 5.56 NATO chambers.
