    Is the reloading data the same for 5.56 as .223 rem?

    You'll need a metric crescent wrench to lock down your dies.

    Wow, a TRUE metric adjustable! I've never seen a SAE-marked adjustable. There isn't much need, but still...

    Nosler manual has 5.56mm data and .223, but it's the only one I've seen.

    Interesting wrench. According to the scale, it can't close all the way. Must be one of the left-handed variety.

    The markings on this one appear to be laser-etched; far superior to the cheap stamping usually seen in this application.

    Look in the Accurate Powders and Ramshot load guides under, "223 Remington NATO / MIL" rifle load data. It's for use in AR!5 rifles.

    http://www.accuratepowder.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/accurate_load_data_3.5.pdf

    http://www.ramshot.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/ramshot_handgun_rifle.pdf

    The old Accurate Arms load guide adds about one grain of powder to regular 223 Remington load. It's not really needed to load that hot and case life is shortened.

    The Sierra AR15 load data is all over the place, being both higher and lower than their bolt action 223 Remington load data.

    The hornady manual has 223 Rem "service rifle" data.
