The standard light rifle round of the NATO alliance, the 5.56x45, like the .223 Remington which shares most of its characteristics, continues to serve for its close to medium range ballistic effectiveness and most especially for its economy. Thanks to its hyper velocity the cartridge creates considerable energy that is belied by its otherwise demure size and cost of materials. This cartridge should NOT be fired in .223 Remington chambers as it generates slightly higher pressures that such firearms are not designed for.
The Winchester “white box” is an established standard among sportsmen for reliability and dependable performance. Custom handloaders specifically seek Winchester brass for its superior quality, making these boxer primed rounds of particular value to shooters and reloaders alike. Winchester remains an American brand that is still manufactured in the US.
