Trivia

  • .223 rounds seen in game are loosely based on the real life .223 Remington round. This round also served as the basis for 5.56mm NATO. While practically considered interchangeable, the .223 Remington and 5.56mm NATO were tested and certified using different analysis and sampling procedures, resulting in the NATO cartridge reporting to having a higher cartridge pressure than the .223 Remington. While .223 Remington chambered rifles are routinely fired with 5.56mm NATO ammunition, and no instance of failure, damage, or injury have ever been determined to be caused by chambering 5.56mm in a .223 rifle, it is generally considered unsafe.
