    FN America Awarded $119 Million Army Contract for M4A1 Carbines - The Truth About Guns The military may be interested in other calibers, but the US Army has just awarded FN America a big contract to crank out thousands of M4’s chambered in good ol’ 5.56 over the next five years.

    So, what's everybody's favorite? Started looking at some last night, and posted reviews are all over the place. One consistent factor - use lots of lube (which I do). Also, since I use a full length sizer to size and deprime, do I need to get the set, or just the FL sizer/decapper? These are...

    I’m thinking I need one of these for home defense. It should be considerably lighters and more maneuverable than a 16” or even a 14” with stakes flash suppressor.. With that in mind, my question is, 8.5” vs 10” barrel, which should I go with? Why? I’ve never shot an AR with less than a 16”...

    I want to ream my .223 Savage barrel with a 5.56 neck and throat reamer only. I have been looking but don't find one I can rent. Gonna do this to make sure I am ok shooting the 5.56. Any of you guys know where I can locate one? I can find the finish reamer but am afraid of it, as I could really...

    Got a Savage .223. Want to shoot 5.56 (just for S & G). How can I tell if my chamber is too tite for 5.56? Can I slip a 5.56 round (type I have to shoot) in the chamber and expect to see it have resistance to bolt closure? If not....am I good ? Does anyone rent the above mentioned reamers? I...

    Do they make a single shot rifle that will handle the 5.56 round? I know they have the.223 but it’s safe to shoot the 5.56 in them?

    Why are not all rifles accepting these 2 rounds not in Wylde chambering? Is the .223 inherently more accurate in it's own chambering and same for 5.56? Think if I were a manufacturer, I would want my rifle as versatile as possible, hence the Wylde chamber. Ruger does a lot of theirs like this if...

    Hello all, I am more of an antique weapons kind of guy BUT I am starting to step into the world of the AR15 somewhat. I have a question that is going around in my head and I know you AR guys can help me with it. I see a lot of AR shooters want the 5.56 barrels because you can shoot 5.56 OR 223...
