Re: 75gr bergers in mag.

the particular rifle i had in mind was the cz 527 carbine, which i have heard does fine with Nato Spec ammo, so i assume the throat is longer (as it should be) and that would make me belive that if the mag will workj, ill be golden. of not, well then i'm off to another prospect.

I must retract this statement. A 75 grain Swift Scirocco II will fit in an AR 15 magazine.

Re: 75gr bergers in mag.

Don't restrict yourself to a 2.26" OAL. Mod a mag and you'll be at 2.37, no problem. Mod the upper as well and you'll be hitting 2.4 OAL before you know it, and feed just like butter.

Re: 75gr bergers in mag.

zip the front out of a PMAG with a dremel, and watch this video and you'll see the lil tiny spot on the underside of the UPPER that needs a tweak. (at 5:30)

I've been doing it for my WSSM AR for years now.

Re: 75gr bergers in mag.

Have you considered the 70g TTSX? I followed this thread when you first asked the question but you got advice from Kevin and he knows more than most. I have been running the 70g TTSX in my AR for hunting for about 8 months now. Very accurate bullet and does a number on game.
