    Guys will the AI mags handle a .338L with OAL 3.75"? I have heard they need everything to be 3.6" or less yet have seen other sources indicating AI internal length leaves 3.775" available. Maybe there was a different mag version that came out later?

    Thanks if anyone can clear up my confusion. The idea is relating to running a stiller tac338 with the badger metal and AI mags so if anyone can definitevely tell me the maximum OAL for that combo would be greatly appreciated.

    And oops! wrong forum sorry..

    3.6-3.65 is the most you will be able to squeeze out of that mag. They measure 3.74 outside to outside.
