ETA: forgot to add another thumbs up vote for the Colt. Anything from Colt, BCM, DD, etc. would serve you quite well.
I've shot some 5.56 in my bolt .223. Don't know if I should have, but didn't notice any problems.

What rate of twist is best in an AR? Seems lots of people run heavy bullets, such as for deer. My bolt doesn't stabilize the heavies.
