Find a hardware store that carries wire gauge numbered drill bits. The #1 is .228 and the #2 is .221. These are the closest ones I've seen to .223.

Good Luck.

Doug is right on track, the .221 will work fine. I have access to metric drill bits and sometimes use a 5.7mm bit which is about .224, but after they wear a little I usually get a .223 hole in the tang.
If you can't find a #2 bit send me your address and I'll send you one.
