Why the difference between .204 and .223?

I reload for my .204 bolt action and .223 AR15. Even though the .204 uses more powder, the cartridge is fairly cool to touch immediatly after removal. However, when the .223 comes whizzing out of my AR, the cartridge will melt the grooves off your fingertips even after some time. Is that from the gases escaping back into the breech area during ejection or something else? Thanks.
