What we need for the AR shooters...

Sure wish some enterprising gunsmith would pick up on this little modification to the AR magazines. DPMS used to sell it as the "VLD Magazine", but i think the guy who was making it for them died. Here's a couple pics, the 2nd of which is the OAL needed for the 75 A-Max seated to the VLD magazine's max. length--

I get that you want to seat the bullet out, but I'm not sure I understand what the modification is? Please elaborate.

Re: What we need for the AR shooters...

If you look closely at the back of the magazine in the top picture you can see where its spot-welded right behind the case. in the bottom picture the magazine is a lot thinner in that area, allowing him to slide the cartridge a little further back into the magazine. I belive it is no longer a stagger-feed type magazine, I've never seen one in person, and I dont think Steve's gonna give his up...

That's right Matt. Right on the nose. It allows for efficent seating of (probably) the best long-range varmint bullet out there for the AR 223-based cases--the A-Max's.
If a gunsmith or fabricator would be interested in putting this magazine back in circualtion i'd send them 1 to play with.

thats an interesting mag,,, but the 75 gr amax isnt much good for coyotes and your ar better have a 1-8 or 1-7 twist and a min 24" barrel and 26'" even better. the 52 gr amax would be a better choice for yotes.

A little off topic. But i have a question for the OP.

Are you running a 223ai in an AR-15 platform?

Yes...and no--no problems with feed and function as some might think, that is.
