Caliber Notes:

Created by Bill Wylde, .223 Wylde is the perfect solution for those looking to experience both accuracy and reliability. It combines the benefits of a match .223 Remington chambering with the dependability of high velocity 5.56 NATO spec ammo due to its tighter throat than 5.56 while still being able to utilize standard military ammunition as their case dimensions remain unchanged.
