Detailed Description

.223 Wylde

.223 Wylde is a hybrid .223/5.56 chamber designed by Bill Wylde to yield the accuracy advantages of the match .223 Remington commercial chambering but without pressure or reliability failures when using high velocity 5.56 NATO spec ammunition. The .223 Wylde achieves better accuracy by having a chamber throat that is tighter than 5.56 but will still function reliably with military 5.56 ammunition as the case dimensions are the same.

There are times when extreme accuracy and the ability for rapid follow-up shots are the most important criteria in selecting a rifle. Those were the primary objectives the engineers at Wilson Combat® were working toward when they designed the SS-15 Super Sniper – and the result far exceeded our expectations. This, shorter, handier version-The Urban Super Sniper has the same impressive accuracy in a more portable package better suited for the practical or tactical shooter.  The Urban Super Sniper has 18” long, 1-in-8 twist, medium heavy-weight, stainless steel premium match-grade barrel – optimized for accuracy with a .223 Wylde chamber. The barrel twist is suited for longer, heavier bullets frequently used for longer range shooting. The medium/heavy barrel profile we developed for this model shaves more than 20 ounces of weight off the standard Super Sniper barrel.  The end result is a tactical rifle that is a pleasure to operate with the same impressive accuracy and reliability that its predecessor is noted for.
