Just wanted to take a survey here as to which you prefer to shoot .233 or 5.56 and why?

I go with 5.56 x 45 as I believe the slightly thicker casing can only be an advantage if if it works well in my rifles. Also, I have a friend that reloads & I figure the heavier casings may last just a bit longer.

Otherwise, I do not notice any difference except the metric mesurement.
I will stil get .223 cal by the case, if the price is right.
