The die dimensions should be identical.

Case capacities will be very close.

The bullets are the same, except that you can probably use heavier bullets in a 556 rifle.

Many of the powders would be identical.

In other words, they are virtually identical.

You'll find a lot more published data labeled for 223 than 556.
