Don't know why .223 or 5.56 round won't load from the mag. My ar's are chambered for the wylde and load fine and will shoot sub .5 moa. Maybe that's one persons's opinion that is only talking about BR shooting. Don't know why he would make that type of statement for having a wylde chamber. Here's an opinion from Sniper Central.
"The .223 has a tighter chamber around the neck and is shorter which allows for a bit better accuracy. You can shoot .223 ammo in a 5.56 chamber, but it is DANGEROUS to shoot 5.56 (surplus for instance) ammo in a .223 chamber. BE CAREFUL. What the Wylde chamber does is allow for 5.56 ammo with slightly tighter chamber for better accuracy. So you can shoot both 5.56 and 223 safely with good accuracy."

He was saying that the wylde chamber was made for bench rest Ar's that shot hand loads with the 80-90gr bullets that have a  COA to long for an AR mags.

Here is a great article on the .223/5.56 chamber

Demontang, I see what you mean but COL is dependent on bullet depth seating. I imagine that most BR shooters set their bullets into the lands and somewhat further. I can shoot 90 gr bullets out of my wylde ars magazines fine. I was definitely jumping the bullet into the lands by doing so and I've only loaded some up once just for grins,the loads are definitely compressed. Anyway I don't shoot BR so I don't have any use of shooting that heavy of a bullet out of my ars. I'll move up to the 25-06 when I need that weight. :chuckle:

Gutpile, your right, I'm not much of a Gamer. Although my son and I did beat Halo 2. :rolleyes:

 If on a budget you can put togehter a kit rifle for around $700. Not likely to be as accurate as a  complete rifle from Bushmaster or RRA, ect.

 Eventually I will get around to putting a Gov't profile 20" on my rifle.
