I'm good thanks

Seeing how it was the BCG you may want to take the extractor out and make sure the inside of the bolt is not all screwed up .

You can shoot both 223 and 5.56 out of the 223 wylde chamber . I believe the wylde chamber has a little more lead or free bore then a 223 but a little less then 5.56 . The heavier the bullet is the longer it must be . The longer free bore gives you more room for the extra bullet length . It's my understanding if you have a 223 chamber a little on the tighter side .The bullet of some 5.56 NATO rounds can be touching and or slightly pushed into the rifling of the barrel causing a presure spike when fired . The Wylde chamber keeps this from happening . Thats my basic understanding of the 223/5.56 chambering issues .
Tolerate- allow the existence, occurrence, or practice of something that one does not necessarily like or agree with , without interference.
If you have some time IMO this is worth a listen/watch but it takes a few minutes to really get going . or a picture of Mohamed
