It’s my impression after much research that the main difference is the 556 NATO chamber is cut with a longer throat to allow the firing of heavy grain weight longer bullets without the build up of pressure.

.223 ammo can shoot in 556 chamber. 556 cannot be shot in a 223 Rem chamber. Both can be used in a 223 wylde chamber.
