.223 vs. 5.56: Ammunition Comparison and Overview

Using commercial .223 cartridges in a 5.56-chambered rifle should work reliably, but generally will not be as accurate as when fired from a .223-chambered gun due to the excessive leade. There always seems to be a lot of confusion over the difference between a .223 and a 5.56 chamber. I often receive questions asking if someone can shove 5.56 ammo into their new AR-15. The quick answer is maybe. Just because a gun has .223/5.56 scribed on the barrel, does not mean it can handle either piece of ammunition equally.

Hi-Point’s Affordable .45 Caliber Carbine

The Hi-Point carbine we are discussing retails for less than $300. I was surprised at the low price and by the performance of this firearm. This is a budget or economy firearm. It isn’t a tack driver at 100 yards, but then few firearms firing a pistol caliber cartridge are. The Hi-Point carbine is a credible home defender, a good recreational shooter, and in a pinch, it will do for small game at modest range. Did we mention the price?
