.223 to 5.56, different shoulder angle and case thickness 5.56 cases originally came with crimped primers (needs to be swedged).

Once you resize a 5.56 case in your 223 dies, the case is now a 223 case.

This is a 5.56 case that needs the shoulder bumped to eleminate excess head space, it is done by bringing your resizing die down a little bit to reshape the case to a correct size. If you find any 5.56 dies let me know, I would really like to get my hands on a set.
