Re: Mag OAL/COAL Broken Tips/Feed issue
I would say range time.
Shoot it like you think you may use it! Use your dummies in the magazine, at first to see if they will survive recoil at the various lengths. Measure before and after, mark them with a sharpie for their COAL. See how far the bullets get set back. You might end up single loading, so you don't beat them up!
I've seen what Magnums do to BT, and SP it's not pretty and that was at COL, not MagOAL. Their fine for 300yds. I would imagine it doesn't help anything out past that.
Almost need a magazine cut off like the Kraig rifles had. Single load, 'till you run into Griz, then switch to mag feed, buy then the distance and deformed tips won't matter. I've thougth that single stack magazines, with positive shoulder control for and aft would be nice, with room for VLDs in front of the shoulder. A pair of shoulder dimples from recoil, I think would be better than dinged meplats.
Good Luck! Happy shootiing!
