Re: DHS Prepares for Civil Unrest...
said by Name Game:The .223 is offered in both AR15 and the H&K MP5s used by law enforcement.
... they're looking for up to 175 million rounds of .223 caliber ammo to be exact. The .223 is almost exactly the same round used by NATO forces, the 5.56 x 45mm.
I wouldn't try to interchange the cartridges, though. I don't know about the H&K, but the AR15s chambered for .223 won't safely shoot a 5.56 cartridge. "Multi" chambered AR15s will handle both.
