Why choose a 223 Wylde Barrel?

Why 223 Wylde Barrels are The Perfect Choice for Competitive and Recreational Shooters.

- Why choose a 223 Wylde Barrel?Competitive shooters and gun enthusiasts frequently choose 223 Wylde barrels. The precision of a match barrel and the dependability of a military-grade barrel are combined in these barrels to provide users the best of both worlds. The 223 Wylde chamber is a hybrid of the 223 Remington and 5.56 NATO chambers. it has a slightly tighter chamber than 5.56 NATO, allowing for more accurate shooting with a wider range of ammunition. Additionally, the Wylde chamber has a slightly longer throat then a 223 Remington chamber, enabling the employment of heavier rounds without compromising accuracy. 16″ barrels are known to be the perfect middle-ground between weight and accuracy. When manufactured properly and proper ammunition is used, these barrels can achieve Sub-MOA consistently throughout your range day. Although you can get 223 Wylde Barrels in much shorter lengths, it is generally frowned upon by the community due to 5.56 NATO and 223 Remington being high PSI rounds, resulting in the shooter experiencing large kickback and flash while shooting. Our 223 Wylde Barrels are 16″ long and have machined fluted on the outer diameter, increasing the surface area available for optimum cooling and ensures consistent results every time.

In summary, 223 Wylde barrels offer the best of both words, as 223 Remington and 5.56 NATO are the two most popular rounds for the AR15 platform and enables more accuracy while shooting both rounds due to the design of the chamber. A 16″ barrel is a great middle ground that provides accuracy while keeping the weight down of the overall gun. Check out our 16″ barrel below!
