glad to help. Feeding and functionality are no different from the factory set up. I like the Mod and will continue to do it

Re: Is there a downside to installing a Wyatt's Extended Mag Box?

As for fit, finish, functionality, I have no problems with this mod. Now, I have a philosophy of K.I.S.S. and it's just something else to go wrong. I have one on my 300RUM and it is nice but I have also found I can load the heavies in it at about max mag length and still get superb accuracy. I used standard BDL BM on my 280AI to eliminate the possibility of forgetting or losing a magazine in the mountains and finding myself bareassed up there. I'd like to say it will never happen but I have seen it happen personally both ways so I chose to eliminate that possibility with my next build. Just something to consider...
