    .223 wylde ?

    is .223 wylde different than .223 rem ?
    I see barrels listed for sale in both but I see no dies on midway for a .223 wylde

    The difference is in the throat of the chamber not in the cartridge.

    The wylde is was designed for use in AR 15 type rifles, it basicly has more tolarence built in. You wont find dies for it, as most people just shoot standard 223 rem in them, but if you absolutly have to have them I am sure some custom die maker would accomidate you.

    The throat difference is what is changed.
    It is essentially in-between the NATO and SAAMI spec.

    The reason it was "Invented" was to try and give better accuracy with ball ammo(less jump).
    Given how long all my Savage 223 throats have been, my personal opinion is that we already have a Wylde chamber practically speaking.
    The dies are ALL the same, Wylde, NATO, 223.
