I have a large supply of Winchester bullets I bought years ago with the intent of loading them for my AR15. I've never reloaded for this rifle because I have plenty factory rounds for it. The bullet packages read:

Winchester 223 Rem
Component Bullet

Is there any reason I can't reload these bullets for my .22-250AI? My reloading data shows bullets for both to be .224. I guess the info on the bullet packages has me wondering why it specifies 223 Rem.
