.256 Universal
 
 

The 256 Universal was designed by Todd Baldwin to make the 256 Winchester Magnum Universal Carbine a little more universal. The Universal Carbine was originally designed to use a plastic single stack magazine, which only allows for 60 grain flat point bullets to be used. By slightly opening up a 30-carbine bolt-face to accept a 223 Winchester case, a number of advantages become available. These include the use of slightly modified high capacity 30-carbine magazines, heavier pointed bullets, more reliable feeding and easy sizing of 223 brass using a 256 Winchester full length sizing die. Other brass with the same base size can also be used.
