Wait, does anyone actually shoot 5.56 NATO out of a .223 Remington rifle?

I don't even own an AR-15, nor do I have any interest in ever owning one, (I prefer the AR-10) and even I know that you're not supposed to do that because 5.56 NATO obviously operates at higher chamber pressures than .223 Remington. (Although the reverse is fine.)

For .223 think varmint rifle, or lightweight 35-55 grain bullets. 5.56mm can handle the longer, heavier bullets much better.

This is why I paid an extra $50 to get a "Wylde" barrel.
This is a barrel designed by Bill Wylde, that is specifically made to handle both rounds without degradation.
I was disappointed that this article didn't reference the Wylde barrel at all.
I would have liked to get the author's critique.

to each their own and I am certainly NOT a black rifle fanatic but.
for my use with a AR-15 anything resembling combat accuracy is just fine with me.
IF I were looking for a long range or varmit caliber it would not be a 223 or a 556 myself.
