5.56 is merely a number. 5.56 NATO is a specific caliber designation of a particular cartridge that has a nominal bore size of 5.56mm. While there are several cartridges that also have 5.56 as part of the designation, if someone merely says “5.56″, they are almost invariably referring to the 5.56x45mm NATO cartridge.
- What is the lethal range of 5.56 NATO?
Both projectiles fired at a paper mache mannequin at 460 meters may sail the distance, but one will probably bounce off. As previous studies concluded, a truly lethal maximum effective range for an M885, 5.56 mm NATO projectile is about 200 to 250 meters (218- 273 yards).
- Which is more powerful .223 or 5.56 NATO?
The 5.56 NATO pressure is about 58,000 psi and the 223 round is approximately 55,000 psi.

This can cause barrel ruptures and could be dangerous for the shooter and the equipment.

FAQ On Green Tips
- What are green tips good for?
WHAT IS GREEN TIP 5.56 GOOD FOR? Shooting. That’s about it. Technically, M855 is better at penetrating barriers like thin walls and car doors than normal 55gr lead 5.56 is, but this really isn’t an attractive characteristic for most normal shooters.
