    I went .223 Wylde on the first build. Not sure it's better, but no sense going .223 then having to worry about firing 5.56. The price on this is low enough to make me slightly nervous, but I'm sure it works just fine for most applications.

    My understanding was it shoots both and with more accuracy than a .556 barrel (all things being equal).

    Personally wouldn't go featureless or purchase the 1:8 twist?

    We're certainly the AR-building geeks here. Comparatively though, he's the expert.

    Don't get standard .223.

    .223 wylde is a match chamber, it will have better accuracy with a quality match barrel and match ammo. Cheap brass ammo (pmc, Wolf gold, etc) it won't have any accuracy improvement over 5.56.

    5.56 is a slightly larger chamber and it comes with better reliability. Dust, full auto, carbon build up/less cleaning, etc will be more reliable.

    For your uses the wylde will be just as reliable.

    If you need to go cheaper go with PSA imo. They are made by FN.

    Go with that brand barrel.


    1:8 is good.

    Edit I know nothing about Cali legal stuff so I can't comment on featureless or whatever.

    not mine. I have the older version.
    nope, i live in new york but we have very similar laws, NY SAFE act is total BS! anyways, yeah featureless is the way to go, if you really want there is this option (not sure if this was already posted)
