.223/5.56x45 Rifle Brass

 

These are the various selections of all .223/5.56 Once Fired Range brass we have to offer in a variety of quantities and grades.  Once Fired .223 Commercial only, 5.56 Lake City, 5.56 Mixed Head-Stamp, Nickel Plated .223/5.56 inventories are updated regularly as we receive them.

New to .223/5.56 reloading?  Here is some useful information that could help determine what type of brass you need:

There are a few things to know about .223 brass but all variations are desirable in their own right.  NOTE: Specifications may vary by manufacturer, please do your own research on your rifle prior to reloading.

The differences between .223 brass and 5.56x45 (specifically NATO mil-spec) brass is a variation in the thickness of the brass wall as well as the throat length (Leade) of the casing to compensate for higher pressure loads.  The 5.56 will have a longer leade than its .223 REM comparable and this is reflected in how both 5.56 and .223 rifles are chambered.  Note: 5.56 rounds can only be chambered in rifles designed to shoot 5.56x45 casings. While .223 REM ammunition can also be fired through a 5.56 rifle, the small extra space created from the 5.56 Leade chamber will cause a very slight loss in pressure but is not dangerous to fire.

Attention should be given to the type of casings you are reloading.  Each .223 REM and 5.56x45/NATO Military casing has specific reload data for each type of round.  Please check for the specifics of your rifle and make sure you are loading and firing under the correct reloading specifications as to avoid damage to your rifle.

You will also encounter a larger percentage of crimped primers in 5.56 rifle casings (typical among military rounds).  This does not guarantee all .223 REM (commercial) rounds will not have a crimped primer pocket, but the likelihood is far less as compared to ordering mixed .223/5.56 casings or 5.56 NATO (military casings).  You must Swage all crimped primer pockets prior to seating a new primer.  *SWAGING is a process that flattens out crimped primer pockets so that a new primer can be seated.  Various manufacturers sell both swaging bench punches as well as swaging dies for this purpose.

Please Contact Us with any additional questions.  Those unfamiliar with loading rifle casings should educate themselves on all safe reloading methods and practices prior to reloading in order to avoid injury or possible damage to equipment.
