    5.56 in Wylde chamber?

    Is there any issues with loading 5.56 brass for a .223 Wylde chamber? My understanding is that the Wylde chamber is a bit tighter than 5.56, but a bit looser than .223.
    Is that correct?

    There is no case made expressly for the Wylde chamber.
    The only option you have is to use 223 or 5.56 cases.

    Yeah, I know that. The question was using 5.56 (verses .223) brass in a Wylde chamber, which I believe is tighter than 5.56 as it's a Hybrid chamber between the .223 & 5.56
    Or does it not matter with FL sizing?

    5.56 is fine in a Wylde chamber.
