No such animal.

Chambering in a specific cartridge; not caliber.

New thread here the other day:

and links to this (which is fairly indepth look at your question):

http://www.luckygunner.com/labs/5-56-vs-223/

And there is a physically observable difference between the .357 remington mag and .38 special example, whereas there is not necessarily such a difference between 5.56 and .223.

I just read the barrel and load accordingly regarding .223 remington and 5.56 NATO.

YMMV
