5.56 is your best bet for a long gun not a 223. A 5.56 can chamber 223 and 5.56 where as a 223 can only chamber 223 rounds

Decent idea but having everyone carrying weapons chambered for the same rounds could save a lot of headaches all the same. And not that you can't kill anything with 5.56 but the round is designed to wound not to kill. Having to hit the heart or head or else track a wounded animal is less than ideal, to say nothing of the importance of being able to drop a human or animal predator immediately.
