The 223 Rem came out during the Vietnam war and was a giant flop at first, due to the high tolerances of the M16 rifle and the mucky conditions in Vietnam, among other issues. However, these problems were resolved, making the 223 Rem one of the most popular rounds in the world for military, law enforcement, and civilian use. For civilians, this round is phenomenal for match and range shooting, varmint and game hunting, and self defense.
