300 BLK mags
« on: November 27, 2021, 09:42:13 AM »
I know Les answered this for me before, but darned if I can find it.   ;D

Bought 30 rd AR mags.  Curve is wrong for the 300 cartridge , so they're basically cool looking 5 rounders.        :(

Should I have just bought 20 rd mags ?
Or does some one make 300 specific mags ?

Thanx   ;D

I've been considering building out a .300 on a spare receiver and wonder this as well.
When the .300 Blk first came on the scene, all the "experts" said one of the advantages was mag compatibility.
"I expect perdition, I always have. I keep this building at my back, and several guns handy, in case perdition arrives in a form that's susceptible to bullets. I expect it will come in the disease form, though. I'm susceptible to diseases, and you can't shoot a damned disease." ~ Judge Roy Bean, Streets of Laredo

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

The taper is different so they don't stack the same.   >:(
As well as wider so mag capacity is a bit lower as well.

See if I can get Kevin to respond he loves his .300.

Slight different animal, but I use straight, metal 20 rounders for my .458.  Did replace the follower with a single stack one.  Not really necessary but heads off any feeding problem with the last round.

That's what I plan on pending other suggestions.
One issue I have is I want to keep 300, and 5.56 unmistakably separate.
Right now I have metal for 5.56, and polymer for 300.

I use Ammo Bands on any that aren't 5.56.  Of course all I got is .458 and .308 right now.

I have one metal 10 rounder also for .458.  Only holds 5.  It doesn't get in the way as much shooting from the bench.  Also had the idea that if I went to hunt in a state with magazine restriction it would be what I'd use.

Magpul makes .300BLK mags, I have 10 or so, also banded. I even have a special band for the sub-sonic 300s.

X-Products allegedly makes a drum mag for the 300, but I have yet to find it on their website.

I just had a talk with my friend from SOCOM... and asked him about the 300BLK magazines....as used in the SiG MCX as adopted by SOCOM, they use standard M4/16 magazines in the MCX.... 220grain Barnes bullet with magnum pistol powder.... switch was from previously used HK MP5SD that had holes drilled in the barrel proper in addition to baffled suppressor so NATO standard 9mm would be sub sonic... a 147 at less than 1000fps is basically a .38spl, and was over matched in one of the Euro terrorist confrontations against 7.62/5.45x 39 with poor outcome for the good guys

That's actually a fairly common practice in dedicated suppressed guns.
Forgotten Weapons has a video of a newer model/ prototype that let's you open or close the holes for sonic or sub- sonic ammo.
I don't recall the maker or I would link the vid.
