    10 shot tikka mags

    Anyone got one, how do you find it? E.g does it function ok, clips into & out rifle ok, feed lips not wearing ....
    Looking at one for a 223, heard the factory tikka mags wear the feed lips out & won't pick up rounds correctly after a few hundred rounds through them that's why the steel lipped ones are made now.

    Not hunting & fishing, a mate has two 223 mags that are worn on the front of feed lips so the round sits up at the front so the bolt just slides over the rim, he went & replaced it with a steel lipped one.
    Proberly was more than a few hundred rounds but just don't want to be caught out with the same problem, if it isn't a issue why have tikka started making only short mags (correct me if I'm wrong) with steel feed lips?
    Cheers Vikingm have checked out different makes just wondering whether any one has used them before I invest in one.

    The trailing edge of the groove in Lapua .223 brass shaves the lips out of the std poly t3 mags pretty quickly. I had a couple go and Beretta replaced them with the still lipped mags for me. They said it was pretty common in .223 (only cal).

    Cheers Dicko, thought it was strange, found a few more examples on the internet, how did you go about getting the exchanged by beretta?

    Optio, I spoke to a local Berret Australia guy. My rifle stopped feeding from the mag as the front of the magazine feed rails got chewed out. Bolt would not pick up the rounds. I paid the difference between the cost of the old and new magazines.
