    If your rifle is marked as 5.56, you can shoot either 223 or 5.56. If your rifle is marked as 223 then you should only shoot 223. 5.56 is a hotter round and should not be used in a 223 rifle.

    What do you use to anneal brass? Do you have one of the "can" based annealers or do you do it by hand, just with a torch?
