The 15 ?
« on: December 01, 2019, 09:20:51 pm »
This fellow gives some reasons why the 15 is so popular for hunting, shooting , and self defense. He is from California. I know very little about these and can honestly say that I have never shot one.  This video says that the 15 will shoot a 223 remington along with the 556 mm nato round. But as incognito  pointed out below, that is not the case unless stamped on the barrel. So I have edited to add incognitos  warning. Thanks Tom

(WARNING: CHECK THE BARREL MARKINGS! A 556 can use 223 also but not the other way around.
I felt compelled to clarify that.)  Per incognito

Yes you are correct. This fellow explains the difference. I am glad you caught this Tom.
