    Original Stoner rifle was .308 but .223 by the time Armalite got it.

    When colt got the Patent or Before when Armalite had the Patent.
    Armalite/Colt was called the AR-15 .223 and Armalite was called the AR-10 .308

    Originally in .223 REM but when NATO switched to 5.56mm hundreds of soldiers were injured when trying to fire the new NATO cartridge in the old .223 REM chambered rifles. Many died as a result of this mistake. That's why almost all are chambered in 5.56 mm NATO now and there are huge warning labels on ammunition packages.
